SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. – Today, the County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors held a public hearing to consider recommendations of the 11-member Citizen’s Redistricting Advisory Commission, appointed last December. The advisory group’s mission is to make recommendations to the Board for the adjustment of supervisorial district boundaries to reflect population shifts identified in Census 2010.
The group has held several meetings to solicit public input. Today they presented an overview of their work to the Board of Supervisors along with the various maps they discussed. County staff and the Board presented additional maps bringing the total number of maps to 13.
The majority of the Board voted to move the following four maps forward for active consideration:
- Map 1 - which would maintain district boundaries as they currently exist;
- Map Jackie May 19 – which would move communities of interest in San Jose to different districts;
- Map Sunnyvale E – which would move Sunnyvale boundary from El Camino Real to Highway 101;
- Map LK Central – which would move the Sunnyvale boundary from El Camino Real to Central Expressway.
The remaining maps are in inactive status for now. The Board will consider the matter further at its June 21st meeting.
