City of Dinuba

What is redistricting?

Every ten years, districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. Local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Assembly Bill 849 (2019) requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public outreach, including to non-English-speaking communities. In Dinuba, the City Council is responsible for drawing council districts. Per the City Charter, the Dinuba City Council will form a Citizens Advisory Committee to oversee the redistricting of boundaries based on 2020 Census data. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is released around March 31, 2021. For the City of Dinuba, the redistricting process must be completed by April 17 2022.

Why does redistricting matter to me?

Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for purposes of electing a councilmember.

The City Council will seek input in selecting the next district map for our City Council. You have an opportunity to share with the City Council how you think district boundaries should be drawn to best represent your community.
You can contact City Clerk, Linda Barkley to find out more about how the process works.

What do the existing council districts look like?

You can find a map of the City’s current council districts here: http://dinuba.org/government/city-council

What criteria will our City Council use when drawing district lines?

To the extent practicable, district lines will be adopted using the following criteria: (1) geographically contiguous districts (each city council district should share a common border with the next), (2) the geographic integrity of local neighborhoods or communities shall be respected in a manner that minimizes its division, (3) geographic integrity of a city shall be respected in a manner that minimizes its division, (4) easily identifiable boundaries that follow natural or artificial barriers (rivers, streets, highways, rail lines, etc.), and (5) lines shall be drawn to encourage geographic compactness. In addition, boundaries shall not be drawn for purposes of favoring or discriminating against a political party.

How will our City Council notify the public about redistricting?

The City Council will reach out to local media to publicize the redistricting process, as well as post information to the website and social media accounts. Also, we will make a good faith effort to notify community groups of various kinds about the redistricting process. Our public hearings or workshops will be provided in applicable languages if residents submit a request in advance. The City Council will notify the public about redistricting hearings or workshops, post maps online before adoption, and create a dedicated web page for all relevant information about the redistricting process.

How can I get involved?

The City Council will be holding hearings or workshops to receive public input on where district lines should be drawn. Those hearings or workshops will be announced as they are scheduled.

You can also submit public comments, including suggested draft maps, by emailing: info@dinuba.ca.gov

How can Dinuba’s parks and programs meet your family's recreation needs?

We want to hear from you! 

The city has begun to prepare a citywide Parks & Recreation Master Plan to establish a path forward for providing high-quality, community-driven parks and recreation offerings across Dinuba.

Resident input is crucial to make sure recreational goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and desires. There will be several opportunities for you to participate, including a community survey and public events. This process will give us an opportunity to identify ways in which to best serve the recreational needs of our growing community over the coming 10 years.

An updated citywide master plan will also position Dinuba for future grant opportunities and pursue Prop 68 funding.

The review and adoption of the Parks & Recreation Master Plan is anticipated for late summer 2020. 

What makes a great community? This city is only as good as you make it. Have you ever wanted to get involved in the community or want to be a part of a club and have no idea how? We have put together a list of great ways to get involved.
