SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
On March 27, National Demographics Corporation (NDC) released six draft district voting maps for Dana Point. Four of the maps—tan, violet, orange, green—outline a move to five-district voting, where each district would vote for their representative every four years. Two more maps—oak and pine—outline four voting districts with at-large voting for a city mayor.
On Tuesday, April 3, and then again on Tuesday, April 17, Dana Point City Council will hold public hearings to solicit input regarding the content of the draft maps and the proposed sequence of elections.
