Redistricting: Last Chance for Public Comment

The county Board of Supervisors will meet on November 29th at 11 AM virtually to review proposed redistricting maps that are under serious consideration. This will be the last opportunity for public input. The final maps will be adopted on December 7th. At issue is which district should the city of Rohnert Park be assigned. To view the proposed maps go here: https://sonomacounty.ca.gov/CAO/Policy-Grants-and-Special-Projects/Redistricting-2021/Draft-maps/ 


Currently the Commission is leaning toward placing Rohnert Park in the west county District 5, which is predominantly rural. The wish of the Rohnert Park city council would prefer to be in the central Santa Rosa, District 3.  By Federal law, each district must have roughly equal population based on the recent census. California law stipulates that “communities of interests” be considered in drawing maps. These two concepts have resulted in conflicting maps.
