Costa Mesa citizens are invited to attend several community meetings throughout the city with demographic mapping expert David Ely, of Compass Demographics, to discuss the process of creating maps for voting district boundaries.
The meetings are scheduled June 2, 4, 15 and 18 and are designed to give residents an opportunity to discuss and interact with others on the district mapping process.
Ely will typically use sample maps as a starting point to give an idea of how equal population district boundaries might be distributed and solicit input and mapping ideas during these meetings.
The meetings will be held:
  • Thursday June 2 at 7 p.m. at the Neighborhood Community Center, 1845 Park Ave.
  • Saturday June 4 at 10 a.m. at Halecrest Park, 3107 Killybrooke Lane.
  • Wednesday June 15 at 7 p.m. at St. Joachim Catholic Church, 1964 Orange Ave.
  • Saturday June 18 at 10 a.m. at the Balearic Community Center, 1975 Balearic Drive.
Translators will be present to assist with language needs in Spanish and Vietnamese.
R.S.V.P.’s are requested, but not required, to help plan for the number of attendees and translation needs.
For more information or to R.S.V.P., please email or call the City Clerk’s office at (714) 754-5225.
