Tri-City Healthcare District is requesting public input and help in planning for by-zone Board of Director elections. TCHD is changing the process by which voters elect the District’s Board Members.

In anticipation of the 2018 election cycle, voting for TCHD Board Members will be by zones, instead of the current at-large (also known as district wide) elections in which all voters have the opportunity to make a decision on each open seat. This change will allow voters to now vote for the one board member representing the zone where the voter lives once every four years.

Tri-City Healthcare District will be hosting two public hearings and three community meetings to give community members the opportunity to provide input on the composition of the districts as well as draft maps of district zones.

Please review the draft maps, share your comments or questions in the feedback form below, or attend one of the community events mentioned below.

More information will be posted to this page as the process moves forward.

Background

On May 25, 2017 the TCHD Board approved Resolution 785, Resolution of the Board of Directors of Tri-City Healthcare District Outlining Intention to Transition from At-Large to District-Based Elections Pursuant to Elections Code 10010(e)(3)(A). Resolution 785 also directed the Chief Executive Officer to begin the LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commission) annexation process upon the recommendation of LAFCO. On July 27, 2017, the TCHD Board approved Resolution 787, a Resolution of Application to San Diego Local Agency Formation Commission from the Board of Tri-City Healthcare District for the Annexation of Territory & Amendment of Tri-City Healthcare District’s Sphere of Influence. This resolution of application proposes to change TCHD’s current boundaries to be generally more coterminous with the three cities’ boundaries.

TCHD resolved to move forward with the LAFCO annexations and the CVRA districting process concurrently so that both can be completed in a timely and efficient manner. TCHD believes it is prudent to process the annexations first in order to avoid having to go through the process of drawing election districts twice – saving time, money, and confusion. However, in an abundance of caution, TCHD is proceeding with drawing proposed maps for both scenarios – one contemplating the District’s current boundaries, and one contemplating the District’s projected boundaries after the annexations are approved. That way, TCHD can assure the public that it will have district-based elections for the November 2018 elections, irrespective of whether or not the LAFCO annexations are finalized before the next election cycle.

Draft Maps

The maps below are drafts, not necessarily the final maps, and future versions may include revisions aimed at addressing concerns raised by community members. There are two draft maps for the District’s current boundaries, and two draft maps for the District’s projected boundaries if/when the boundary changes are approved by LAFCO. Links below will take you to PDFs of the draft maps and demographic profiles.

Interactive Map Viewer

We strongly suggest the public utilize this helpful interactive map viewer by clicking on the link below. In this Interactive Map Viewer, you will find “+” and “-” buttons that you can use to zoom in and out of the map, easily switch through draft map options using a check box on the upper-right hand side, see street names clearly, and easily drag the map up, down or from side to side. You can also enter an address or a location name in the search box to zoom to that location, and the map will tell you what zone that address is in, and what the demographics of that zone are. You can also use the up-arrow and down-arrow buttons in the box in the top right to change the underlying base map from the street map default to a topographical map or a satellite view (or back to a street map).
