Over the next few weeks, the County’s Redistricting Advisory Committee will convene in each of the County’s five districts, giving residents an opportunity to learn about County redistricting and voice their ideas.
At each meeting, County staff will present an overview of the County’s redistricting process, including the laws, principles and timelines that guide it. The presentation includes population and demographic data and information about how the public can submit redistricting plans, give suggestions and stay involved using the County’s redistricting website.
The meetings are also opportunities for residents to address the Redistricting Advisory Committee with suggestions, plans and information about their communities.
The County’s Redistricting Advisory Committee is the citizen’s panel charged with gathering public opinion on how to adjust the County’s supervisorial district boundaries to balance their populations. Such balancing is required by law every ten years following the Census.
