County Sets Deadline for Redistricting Plans

County officials have set a May 9 deadline for residents to submit county redistricting plans — either online or in person at one of two Redistricting Advisory Committee meetings before the deadline. The next meeting–the last in a series of evening meetings around the region, is at 6 p.m. today in the Planning Commission Hearing Room at the County Operations Center Annex, 5201 Ruffin Road, in Kearny Mesa. In county redistricting, a “plan” means a set of data that assigns census tracts or blocks to a particular supervisorial district. Residents may propose a complete plan for the county’s five districts or a partial plan for one or more districts; data should be submitted as an electronic file. The 2010 census data for building plans is online at the county’s redistricting Website, along with detailed instructions and definitions. Each publicly-submitted plan will be published online and forwarded to the County’s Redistricting Advisory Committee for consideration. On May 9, the Redistricting Advisory Committee will begin discussing redistricting plan proposals, and any formal plans they consider will be posted online. The County’s Redistricting Advisory Committee is charged with recommending no more than three proposed redistricting plans to the Board of Supervisors. The committee is scheduled make its proposals to the board on June 28. For more, visit

Voice Your Opinion

We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
