Map Options for CVRA Transition from “At-Large” To “By-Trustee Area” Elections
UPDATE: 2 Additional Map Options Created
To date, the District has conducted four public hearings as part of the District's transition from "at-large" to "by trustee area" elections. Based on online feedback and discussion at the map public hearing on June 14th, the demographer created two additional map options – Scenario 4A and Scenario 5. The original 4 draft trustee area maps will remain under consideration along with the newly released map options – totaling 6 options under consideration.
Scenario 4A was created in an attempt to follow elementary school attendance areas. Since the attendance areas cross through or split up Census blocks, it is not possible to keep these areas perfectly intact, but Scenario 4A, thematically, is based on attendance areas to the extent possible. Scenario 5 was created as north-south “strips.”
All 6 maps are available for review below.
As always, we encourage your continued participation and input during the last and final public hearing on June 28th. If you cannot attend and wish to review and/or comment regarding the proposed map options under consideration, please submit your comments and feedback to [email protected], via ThoughtExchange, or comment via telephone at 510-537-3000 extension 1211. All map preference feedback will be relayed to the Board prior to its discussion and adoption of a map option.
We look forward to your continued participation!
