Redistricting is important, as it determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for purposes of electing a board member.
The Board of Supervisors assigned the task to a "Redistricting Committee, which will seek input in adjusting the maps for our supervisorial districts in a manner that makes sense with the new Census numbers. At that time -- probably beginning in October -- residents will have ample opportunity to share with the Redistricting Committee how they think district boundaries should be drawn to best represent the community.
