On September 11, the City is looking forward to discussing Redistricting and the Draft Urban Water Management Plan, answering any questions, and providing additional information. The Morgan Hill Farmers' Market is located at 3rd and Depot Streets, near the Train Station. City staff will be available from 9:00 a.m. - noon.
The City will have on hand information covering the Urban Water Management Plan and Redistricting now that 2020 Census data is available. Join teammates on Saturday, September 11, and Saturday, October 9, 9:00 a.m. - noon.
What is redistricting, and why am I hearing so much about it? Redistricting is drawing new boundaries that determine which voters are represented by each electoral district. It is such a hot topic right now because every 10 years - after the federal government publishes updated Census information - political districts at local, state, and national levels are redrawn so that the districts correctly reflect the population as it evolves over time.
Urban Water Management Plan: https://www.morgan-hill.ca.gov/DocumentCenter/View/39496/PublicReviewDraft_MH_UWMP
Regarding Urban Water Management and the City's Draft Plan, the City of Morgan Hill, as a water supplier, must submit an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) to the Department of Water Resources in accordance with California Water Code requirements. The purpose of the UWMP is to review and maintain the reliability of urban water supplies, ensure that future beneficial use can be complemented by sufficient water supply, continue to promote policies and programs that benefit water conservation, and provide a means for response during water supply shortages and drought conditions.
