A GIS tool is available for those interested in mapping their Communities of Interest.
Instructions are provided when the map is launched, and Help is available using the "question mark" icon at the upper right.
To draw boundaries of a Community of Interest using our GIS map:
- Zoom into the area of Lake County where your Community of Interest is located (using a computer mouse, fingers on a touchscreen device, and/or the "plus" and "minus" buttons in the upper left of the screen)
- Use the "Draw" function (paintbrush and artist's palette icon at the upper right) to define boundaries
- Once boundaries are drawn, select the printer icon at the upper right of the screen. This will launch a menu on the right side of the screen to create a PDF file that can then be saved and emailed to Lake County staff, or printed and delivered in person or by mail to:
County Administrative Office
ATTN: Redistricting 2021
255 N Forbes Street
Lakeport, CA 95453
Alternatively, residents can use the GIS tool to locate the area of their Community of Interest and print their map, and then draw the boundaries with an ink pen, for example, and scan and email or mail their map to the above address.
