Dear Hideout Residents,
Redistricting is a process that occurs every 10 years, where states use the most recent census data to designate electoral boundaries within the state. Redistricting impacts everything from congressional districts and school boards to community growth. As Utah changes demographically, redistricting resets a balance to makes sure that each political boundary is of substantially equal population and representation, so that every voice has a chance to be heard.
We have a chance to influence the districts by providing our perspective on our “community of interest” For example, having one community, like Millcreek, be in three different Congressional districts makes little sense.
Our question to you is this:
Does having Hideout in a separate district from other neighboring communities make sense? Should we be associated with Summit?, The Jordanelle Basin?, All the communities along SR248?
Please click here to take the one-question survey to let us know how you feel. The timeline is short. We need to hear from you no later than October 21, 2021.
For more information on redistricting, please see the attached document.
Your Hideout Town Council
