Press Release: Alameda County to Hold Public Hearings on Redistricting--
In Berkeley on Monday

Friday June 03, 2011 - 10:51:00 AM

The Alameda County Board of Supervisors will host a series of public hearings throughout the County to discuss redistricting, a process required by State law in which the County’s supervisorial districts are adjusted every ten years after the release of new federal census data. 

Six public hearings will be held between May 31 and June 9, and at least one hearing will be held in each of the County’s five supervisorial districts. Each County supervisor will host a meeting in his or her home district. 

Individuals and/or community groups are encouraged to participate in the redistricting process, and the public hearings are designed to facilitate this participation. Staff from Alameda County’s Community Development Agency will make presentations at each meeting regarding the 2010 Census data and how that may affect supervisorial boundaries in the County.  

The Board of Supervisors has established a redistricting ad-hoc committee to oversee the redistricting process. The public may submit redistricting proposals for consideration, or request to work with County staff in developing proposals, by contacting Michael Munk at the Alameda County Community Development Agency at michael.munk@acgov.org . Maps will be posted on the County redistricting website. The deadline for submitting redistricting proposals is June 10. 

On or around June 13, the Ad-Hoc Redistricting Committee will advise the full Board of Supervisors and the public regarding the submitted proposals. Work sessions may be held between June 20 and June 30, with a final redistricting plan scheduled to be adopted by the Board of Supervisors on July 12, with the second reading on July 26.
