HPHT is an Official Redistricting Ambassador for the City of LA

We are happy to share that Highland Park Heritage Trust is an Official Redistricting Ambassador organization for the 2021 LA City Redistricting Effort. This means that we will be providing impartial, non-political information, education, and outreach to the community throughout the process so that NELA and the Eastside have a chance to give their public comment throughout the process.

We have been doing outreach for the hearings in our local districts, as well as the final citywide hearings in the first phase of the efforts. The very last citywide hearing before the draft maps are drawn and released will be held via Zoom on Sept 11th, 2021 at 10am and the link is http://bit.ly/LACCRCZoom. For those who can’t make it, you can sent in public comments virtually on your own time by Sept 11th to have a say before the draft maps are released at this link: http://bit.ly/lacitycoi .

Once the draft maps are released, you will have more opportunity to send in your public comment for Phase 2, and we will be sure to send reminders for these meetings and let you know how you can send your public comment in online if you can’t make it to a meeting. For a listing of the upcoming meetings, CLICK HERE. 

We are also seeking to continue partnering with organizations to ensure that the most people possible hear about this chance to have a say in the way that the lines are drawn for our Council District Boundaries in LA, and especially in our Northeast and Eastside council districts.

Partnering organizations include: NELA Community, Boyle Heights Community Partners, Avenue 50 Studio, Historic Garvanza, Hand more.

Make sure that you are following us on our social media between now and November to ensure that you are getting reminders about the meetings and the process.
