Palm Desert Redistricting Workshops, Hearings Set

The public is invited to a workshop on Thursday, January 20th, at 6:00 p.m. at the Palm Desert Community Center where residents will have a chance to learn about and provide feedback on the City’s redistricting process based on the recently released 2020 Census data.

Every 10 years, local governments use new data from the Census to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. The City of Palm Desert is asking for the public’s help to plan, draw, and reapportion the City’s districts. The City will hold a series of public hearings and community engagement workshops, beginning this month.
