Update message to York County citizens:

The York County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on April 19 for the purpose of receiving additional comments from the public prior to deciding which redistricting plan to adopt.

This year the Board of Supervisors will need to redraw the County's election district boundaries. Based on the principle of "one person, one vote," federal and Virginia law requires election districts to be drawn every ten years, following the U.S. Census, to provide for districts that are relatively equal in population. The geographic distribution of population growth in the County since 2000 has been uneven; therefore, district boundaries will have to be adjusted.

At its March 15 meeting, the Board of Supervisors selected two alternative redistricting plans for public review and comment. These alternatives can be viewed by clicking on the link below. All public comments will be forwarded to the Board.   

View alternatives and make comments on line at

All are encouraged to come and be prepared to speak about one of the choices - B2 or E2.  You can view them at York Hall or on line.
Only a few citizens came to the last meeting to view the proposals prior to the meeting – we now have a choice, come and be heard!

Additionally, the Board of Supervisors regular meeting will be held on April 5th 6:00 PM, East Room, York Hall.  
Agenda:  Proposed adoption of Fiscal Year 2012 Budget, 2011 Tax Rates, and 2012-2017 Capital Improvements Program
