SUMMARY

 

Every ten years, the federal government conducts a census to determine the number of individuals living in the United States. Following each census, State law, Section 21500, requires that the Board of Supervisors adjust the boundaries of any or all of the supervisorial districts of the county so that “the districts shall be as nearly equal in population as may be.” For the 2021 Alameda County redistricting effort, staff from the Community Development Agency worked with a consultant to use data from the 2020 Census and Communities of Interest identified by residents during a public outreach process to develop three draft proposed redistricting maps. Proposed Map A (Attachment IV) is very similar to the existing district map, while Maps B and C (Attachments V & VI) present more significant changes and different options for grouping Hayward’s neighborhoods in two separate districts. A fourth map - Map D (Attachment VII) was released the week of November 8 in response to public feedback during recent meetings.
