Thursday, July 29 (6pm) DETAILS
CITY COUNCIL REDISTRICTING COMMISSION:
The Los Angeles City Charter requires that the City be redistricted at least once every 10 years. It calls for the creation of a twenty-one member Redistricting Commission, which has the authority to make recommendations on a redistricting plan to the City Council that sets boundaries for City Council districts.

CALIFORNIA CITIZENS REDISTRICTING COMMISSION:
Visit the 2020 California Citizens Redistricting Commission (CRC) website where you will find information about California’s redistricting process and how you can get involved. In November 2008, California voters passed the Voters FIRST Act, authorizing the creation of the Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission to draw new district lines, taking the job out of the hands of the California Legislature and transferring it to the citizens. In 2010, the VOTERS FIRST Act for Congress added the responsibility of drawing Congressional districts to the Commission.
LOS ANGELES COUNTY REDISTRICTING COMMISSION:
During Summer 2021, the Citizens Redistricting Commission (CRC) will conduct ten (10) public hearings for input from communities of interest. At these hearings, the CRC will describe their process and ask for community input on what to consider in the redistricting effort. This is your chance to tell the commission where the important communities of interest are located so Supervisorial Districts can be drawn in a fair manner.
Your input is valuable to us. Members of the public are welcome to make sign up to make live comments at the public hearings or submit public comments before, during, or after the public hearing.
A community of interest is a contiguous population that shares common social and economic interests that should be included within a single district for purposes of its effective and fair representation. Communities of interest shall not include relationships with political parties, incumbents, or political candidates.
You can attend more than one public hearing. The zones (see map below) do not represent the only time you can provide input. If you are unable to attend the scheduled public hearing for your area, please attend another or submit written comment.
