Every 10 years the federal government conducts the United States Census and each community college district must update its trustee areas to reflect the latest population counts, so that they are equal in population. This requirement is both statutory and constitutional.
MiraCosta Community College District has engaged the services of Nielsen Merksamer Parrinello Gross & Leoni, LLP, Attorneys at Law to represent the District with its post-Census readjustment of Board of Trustee electoral areas, in compliance with Education Code §5019.5 and state and federal laws.
Notice of Public Hearing
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing will be held by the Board of Trustees of the MiraCosta Community College District to receive public input and testimony regarding revisions to the District’s trustee area plan. Education Code § 5019.5 requires each district that elects its governing board “by-trustee area” to adjust the trustee area plan following the release of the Census. The Board will consider plans based on the 2020 Census.
