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 sdcounty.ca.gov/redistricting.
