The Lake Arrowhead Community Services District transitioned from an “at-large” to a “by-division” voting system in 2018. Five unique voting divisions (Divisions 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5) were established within the District’s service areas. Voters residing in each division select one representative to serve on the Board of Directors (Board), and that representative must live in the division from which they are elected.
In accordance with Elections Code Section 22000, the District is required to adjust division boundaries after each federal decennial census. Using the census data as a basis, the boundaries of the divisions must be adjusted so that they are equal in population to the extent possible. In adjusting the boundaries of the divisions, the board may give consideration to the following factors: (1) topography, (2) geography, (3) cohesiveness, contiguity, integrity, and compactness of territory, and (4) community of interests of the division.
Before adjusting the boundaries, the Board shall hold at least one public hearing on the proposal prior to the public hearing at which the Board votes to approve or defeat the proposal (two total public hearings).
On February 22, 2022, the Board held the first public hearing to receive public comments on the proposed map.
On March 22, 2022, the Board held the second public hearing to respond to public comments and voted to adopt the final map adjusting the division boundaries.
