Re-Districting Process 2021-2022

Central FD Re-Districting Process Information

The re-districting process of the Central Fire District of Santa Cruz County has begun.  After receiving public oral communication on the possibility of a CVRA violation it was decided that the public interest would be best served by converting from an at-large based election system to a district-based electoral system.

The Central Fire District has chosen National Demographics Corporation to implement the planning, mapping and population data collection/analysis for this process. A number of public workshops will be scheduled to receive input from District residents on this process before final plan revisions are made and adopted.

We will continue to update this page with new information as this process develops.
