Maps available here. Public input needed!
By Roberta Millstein
Today, the City of Davis released five draft maps for proposed districts for future City Council elections: three 5-district maps and two 7-district maps. Recall from my previous post that it may be difficult to change the number of districts once the City decides, so that decision itself is as important, if not more important, than the maps themselves.
The maps are below, with their relevant data. You can click on any image to enlarge it.
Important deadlines are coming soon for the City’s District Election process:
- Oct. 5 – Farmers Market Tabling
- Oct 8 – Public hearing #3 at City Council meeting; final opportunity to provide direction to modify district election maps
- Oct 15 – Revised maps released to public
- Oct. 19 – Farmers Market Tabling
- Oct 22 – Public hearing #4 at City Council meeting; council to receive input on proposed maps and make final district election map decision
You can comment at City Council meetings on Oct 8 and/or Oct 22 (start 6:30 p.m. at Community Chambers, 23 Russell Blvd), and you can send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Important note: The City has numbered the proposed draft maps, which it really shouldn't have, IMO (in comparison, the proposed school board district maps are labelled with colors like red and green). But you should not infer that #1 is the most preferred or that #2 is the second-most preferred, etc. I've kept the numbering scheme here only for the sake of consistency.
Remember that the City needs your input on which, if any, of these maps are satisfactory.
