The Rancho Simi Recreation & Park District, like dozens of special districts across the state, is making a change in how voters elect its Board of Directors. Beginning in 2024, voters will vote for one Director who lives in their division. This will replace the current system of at-large district-wide elections in which voters have the ability to vote for all Board of Directors.
We need your help to make this change and draw new Board of Director divisions!
One of our primary goals when drawing divisions is to draw lines that respect neighborhoods, history, and geographical elements. So we want to know: What do you consider the boundaries of your neighborhood?
