Get out your magnifying glass

Supervisors need to make a decision on how new district lines will be drawn, as a result of increases in population, and that decision probably will come on Thursday, during a 5:30 p.m. work session in the county building. Staff provided four redistricting options last night, which basically made the James Monroe and James Madison districts smaller, because they’ve seen more population growth in recent years, and made Shiloh and Dahlgren districts bigger.

Supervisors asked if county staff could do a little more tweaking on the fourth option, which was favored by board members because it kept the Meadows subdivision together, unlike three other options, which split it. Be prepared to squint when you look at handouts from the county. You definitely need high-powered reading glasses or a magnifying glass to read the fine print. Or maybe that’s just me.
