Watch how to use online mapping tools and identify communities with shared interests

Berkeley, California (Thursday, September 23, 2021) - Come to a virtual meeting where you can learn how to help shape new City Council district boundaries and even submit your own maps on paper or using online tools.

The City's eight Council boundaries are re-drawn every ten years using updated Census figures, but, for the first time in Berkeley, they'll be drawn by an independent commission rather than elected officials.

Using public input, the Independent Redistricting Commission will draw eight districts with roughly the same number of people. They'll look to keep communities with similar social and economic interests together.

What the map looks like is something you can take part in.

Oct. 2 meeting starts map submission period

The launch of the public submission period is on Oct. 2, when you can come to the commission's kick-off meeting.

We'll be making the online and printable mapping tools available after the meeting. During the meeting, we'll demonstrate how to use them.

Saturday, October 2, 1pm 
Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87605788482
Phone: (669) 900-9128; Meeting ID: 876 0578 8482

You will also have the chance to share general thoughts on the redistricting process during the meeting.

For questions or requests for accommodation or to receive printed copies of mapping tools, contact the City Clerk Department at redistricting@cityofberkeley.info or (510) 981-6908.
