Next Tuesday, during the last Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting of 2021, the final map of Nevada County’s supervisorial districts is slated for adoption. Based on 2020 census data, some minor shifts will occur to reflect population growth and public input. The Nevada County Redistricting Advisory Council held public hearings and workshops, received comments from residents via the redistricting website and presented options to the BOS. Supervisors will hear a final presentation and vote on the final map at 10:30 am on Tuesday, December 14, 2021.
