County redistricting plans in progress; public input sought

The county’s Redistricting Advisory Committee has begun developing proposals for redrawing the county’s five supervisorial districts, but there is still plenty of opportunity for the public to give feedback and suggestions to the committee. About one month remains before the committee must make its final redistricting recommendations to the Board of Supervisors. Redistricting determines which supervisorial district residents live and vote in, so everyone has a stake. Every 10 years after the federal census, the district boundaries must be redefined to balance the districts’ populations. To learn about the committee’s work so far, view videos of past meetings and review drafts of proposed redistricting plans developed by the committee and the public, visit the county’s redistricting website at www.sdcounty.ca.gov/redistricting. The public can also submit suggestions to the Redistricting Advisory Committee through the website, e-mail or U.S. mail.

To follow the committee’s work and comment in person, the public is encouraged to attend any or all of the remaining Redistricting Advisory Committee meetings scheduled for June 2 and 9 at 2 p.m. and June 13 at 9 a.m. in Room 310 at the county Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway in San Diego.

The county’s Redistricting Advisory Committee is a citizen’s panel charged with gathering public opinion and recommending no more than three proposed redistricting plans to the Board of Supervisors by June 28.

The board will consider redistricting proposals at its own public meetings and adopt a final redistricting plan that takes effect in early September.
