Advisory Districting Committee plans final meetings

Posted on February 10, 2018 at 9:28 am by Clay Curtin

With just under two weeks before the Advisory Districting Committee’s final deadline to submit its recommendations, the Committee will meet at 7:15 p.m., Monday, February 12, 2018, at the Menlo Park Senior Center. As part of the agenda, the Committee will discuss the most recently submitted draft district boundary maps and hear additional public comment before selecting its final “focus” maps. The members of the public can continue to submit draft maps until Monday’s meeting in Belle Haven. Any maps submitted at or before the Monday evening meeting will be processed by the demographer and shared at the Committee’s meeting on Thursday, February 15, 2018.

The Committee has been tasked with presenting two recommendations to the City Council:
  1. a recommendation for dividing the City into five voting districts, and
  2. a recommendation for dividing the City into six voting districts (with an at-large elected mayor).
Each district map shall also contain an election sequencing recommendation. Election sequencing shall take into account the City’s practice of staggering elections every two years and in accordance with State law shall not cut short any existing councilmember’s term.

The Committee is to vote on its final recommendations at its meeting on February 22, 2018. Learn more by visiting the District Elections webpage, or contact the City Clerk’s Office with questions.
