On March 10, 2022, the Ukiah Unified School District Board of Trustees adopted Resolution No. 11, 2021-22, declaring the District’s intention to transition to by-trustee area elections.  Public hearings were held on March 10 and March 24, 2022, where Trustees requested community input regarding the preparation of potential trustee area maps.  After these public hearings, a demographer prepared maps based on the legal requirements of the Federal Voting Rights Act, the California Voting Rights Act, and community input. These initial maps were made available to the public on April 1, 2022.  

On April 14, 2022, the Ukiah Unified Trustees held the first of two public hearings regarding the maps themselves.  Based on the input from the April 14 meeting, maps have been revised and made available to the public at Trustees will hold a second public hearing on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. to discuss and vote on revised maps.

“We are nearing the end of the process for our move to by-trustee area elections, and the public has one more chance to weigh in on the new maps. We have had several meetings and public hearings to develop these maps, and I believe they are well balanced and provide a variety of options to choose from,” said Ukiah Unified Chief Business Official Steve Barekman. “We will be reviewing three final options and voting on maps at our next meeting on April 27th. Please provide feedback by attending the meeting or email us at”
