The Redistricting Commission (RC) has chosen two maps for the community to consider for adoption for new Sacramento City Council districts. There is a huge amount of data and backstory to these maps.
The RC only has one meeting left for public comment and it will take place on Wednesday, December 8th at 5:30pm. Learn more about attending this meeting.
The SCNA Neighborhood Concerns Committee has looked at these two maps (as well as all of the originally-submitted 32 maps) and our recommendation to Curtis Park and other District 5 constituents is to Reject Map A, vote for Map B which preserves our representative clout with Land, South Land, Oak and Hollywood Parks.
Reject Map A which groups District 5 with neighborhoods down Highway 99 past Florin Road. Curtis Park has different levels of income, percentages of renters, people on public assistance, numbers of foreign born and governance interests from those neighborhoods south of Fruitridge Road along Hwy 99. It also splits the Land Parks from Curtis, Oak and Hollywood Parks, neighborhoods which have historically cooperated on a number of initiatives.
Support Map B which preserves our representative clout with Land, South Land, Oak and Hollywood Parks.
WHAT IS REDISTRICTING?
Every 10 years, after the U.S. Census, the City of Sacramento must re-establish the boundaries for City Council districts. The resulting council district boundaries must be balanced in population in accordance with local, state, and federal rules governing the redistricting process.
In 2020, the Sacramento Independent Redistricting Commission was formed to set council district boundaries.
The Sacramento Independent Redistricting Commission will be meeting throughout 2021, see the schedule on this website. All meetings and agendas will be publicly noticed prior to the scheduled meeting. The public are encouraged to participate.
You can attend the public meetings virtually, ask questions and make public comments, you may submit eComments on a posted Commission agenda on the City’s website.
