Public Hearings on Redistricting Begin at the Port of Vancouver
The Port of Vancouver USA is announcing three public hearings as part of their redistricting process. Redistricting occurs every 10 years, following the national decennial census.
The population growth in Clark County has affected the equal distribution of residents living in each of the port’s three commissioner districts. Due to this growth, a proposed map has been drawn, adjusting the commissioner district boundaries to bring the three districts to as nearly equal population as possible. Because the Port of Vancouver does not have an election until 2023, the port has until November 2022 to complete their redistricting process.
The port is holding three public hearings regarding the new commissioner districts, with a final vote on adopting the new map, taking place immediately after the last hearing.
All of these hearings will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Port of Vancouver headquarters and will be broadcast on Clark Vancouver Television (CVTV). The dates of these hearings are:
- Tuesday, August 23, 2022
- Tuesday, September 13, 2022
- Tuesday, September 27, 2022
A vote to adopt the new district map will take place immediately following the public hearing on September 27.
