Transition to By-Trustee Area Elections


During the July 19, 2017 regularly scheduled board meeting, the Coast Community College District Board of Trustees approved a resolution stating the intention to transition from at-large to district area elections. The intent of the proposed process is to offer greater opportunities for representation of the community on the Board of Trustees. Transitioning to the new system requires that the Board of Trustees hold five public hearings.  The first two will be held on August 2, 2017 and August 16, 2017 at 5 p.m. in the Board meeting room at 1370 Adams Avenue, Costa Mesa, CA. A proposed map or maps of trustee area boundaries will then be prepared and hearings on the map or maps will be scheduled by the Board of Trustees.  Following approval by the Board of Trustees of the map of Trustee Area boundaries, an application will be filed with the California Community Colleges Board of Governors.  If the Board of Governors approves the application, the "by-trustee" area voting will go into effect starting with the 2018 general election on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
