At the November meeting of the North Coast Advisory Council (NCAC), the focal agenda item was discussion of four alternative redistricting plans submitted by the County Staff Advisory Committee.

      County redistricting occurs every ten years following the census.  This year’s decision is especially critical to Cambria and San Simeon, as some of the proposed plans would significantly alter the structure within the supervisorial districts.  Draft Plan C, for example, would separate San Simeon and Cambria from the coastal towns of Cayucos, Morro Bay, and Los Osos, instead becoming joined with Paso Robles and San Miguel.

     The NCAC is encouraging residents to view all of the draft plans and voice their perspectives on redistricting to the County.  The draft plans, other discussions on redistricting, and public comments links can be accessed at:  slocounty.ca.gov/Departments/Administrative-Office.  On the left side of the page, click on “2021 Redistricting.”

     The North Coast Advisory Council was formed in 1996 and is the North Coast community’s connection to decision makers in County government on issues of land use, planning, traffic and circulation, policing, and code enforcement.  The area covered by NCAC ranges from Harmony to the south and the Monterey County line to the north, and from the ocean east to Rocky Butte.  Join a committee, run for the next election, or simply attend a meeting.  NCAC welcomes your involvement.  Visit the NCAC website at:  ncacslo.org.
