Public can now submit redistricting plans and suggestions online

The county wants to hear from you! Everything the public needs to submit redistricting plans and suggestions for San Diego County’s 2011 redistricting process is now available on the county’s redistricting website.

From now until May 9, members of the public can submit their proposed plans for one or more of the county’s five supervisorial districts using the new 2010 census data.

In county redistricting, a “plan” means a set of data that assigns census tracts or blocks to a particular district. The 2010 census data for building these plans is now online, along with detailed instructions, definitions and submission guidelines.

The public should submit plans as electronic files. Each publicly submitted plan will be published online and forwarded to the county’s Redistricting Advisory Committee for consideration.

In addition to submitting redistricting plans, residents are encouraged to contribute ideas and suggestions about county redistricting to the Redistricting Advisory Committee in person at any of the committee’s meetings or by email or U.S. mail. A meeting schedule and contact information is posted on the redistricting website.

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.

At its upcoming public meetings, including an evening meeting in each district, the committee will consider the public’s plans and suggestions.
Ultimately, the committee must recommend no more than three proposed redistricting plans to the board of supervisors. The board will adopt a final redistricting plan that takes effect in early September.
