Finding the Maximum Area Served (from a point location) Relative to Population

Hey everyone,

I am trying to find the area served by a point location (roughly 29 points) based on a population layer.  These points are facilities that serve the population during an outbreak event - they each have a max population served field. I need to create districts or boundaries around each facility showing the public where they should go durning an outbreak.  Using a Census Block layer, what is the best way to achieve this goal? I'm assuming Location-Allocation?

Edit: Distance from point would be considered a cost.  Want to find a boundary closest to the facility representing the maximum population allowed .

Thanks,

Jesse Hopkins
