The Los Angeles County Citizens Redistricting Commission, or L.A. County CRC, is launching 10 public hearings to solicit ideas on how to adjust the district boundaries for electing the Board of Supervisors for the next decade.
The LA County CRC is unlike past practices when the Board of Supervisors appointed an advisory boundary redistricting committee to study proposed changes and could make revisions before adopting the final districted boundaries.
Now, the L.A. County CRC is independent of the Board of Supervisors as a result of California legislation that passed in 2016.
At the local level, periodic redistricting can help to ensure the county’s diverse population and communities have opportunities to have their voices heard, enable voters to elect representatives of their choosing and not draw supervisorial districts in such a way as to dilute fair opportunities, and have supervisors be responsive to the preferences and needs of residents through public policies to improve lives.
English-language meetings are scheduled for June 14, 23 and 28; July 14, 20 and 28; and Aug. 11, 19 and 22. A Spanish-language meeting will be held on Aug. 7.
