Valley-Wide Recreation board selects election districts


(election districts)


Board Directors for Valley-Wide Recreation and Park District have completed the process to enact election districts starting in 2020, unanimously selecting a map of the new voting areas at their Nov. 18 meeting.

Currently, board members are elected at-large and may live anywhere in the district. Under the new plan, directors will be required to live in specific areas and will be voted on by residents of that area.

The terms of three of the directors – John Bragg, Noah Rau and Steve Simpson – expire in 2020. Board Directors Nick Schouten and Jan Bissell will continue to serve at-large until their terms expire in 2022.

The move complies with the California Voting Rights Act, General Manager Dean Wetter said.

“This change will help us continue to serve the needs of all the residents in the large geographic area where were provide recreation services,” Wetter said.

The study and map options were provided by National Demographics Corporation, which has performed demography services for hundreds of local governments

Valley-Wide is a special district with more than 80 parks and recreation centers in the cities of Hemet, Menifee and San Jacinto and unincorporated communities of Aguanga, French Valley, Valle Vista and Winchester. There are some 250,000 residents in the district.

Valley-Wide offers sports leagues for children, adults and seniors and well as classes and special events. Information:
