During the 2011 redistricting process arbitrary lines were drawn that ignored and divided several communities of interest like the Tri-Valley, the Tri-Cities and the Ashland, Cherryland, San Lorenzo areas. Those divisions continue into 2021 Redistricting. Boundary lines have been drawn/re-drawn in the past so a Supervisor could live in a certain area and still maintain their position, or to protect a Supervisor's "relationships", business or personal, within their current district. It would seem the Supervisors have once again aligned Alameda County to suit their vision in Draft Map A.
The video from the November 16th meeting is not yet available, so I don't know if Draft Map A is the only draft map to be provided for review and comment. If it is to be the only draft map, it would seem the redistricting criteria has been set aside and public commentary once again ignored.
The link to see the interactive Draft Map A is provided below. Tap the "Layer List" in the upper right corner to see various configurations, including Census Designated Places boundaries, current District configuration, initial map visualizations A, B & C, map visualization D based on Nov 4th commentary, and the approved Draft Map A.
If you'd like to share your thoughts on the Board of Supervisors approved Draft Map A, I've posted that link below as well. You are also able to see the public comments. I received notice of Draft Map A on Friday afternoon. The next meeting is on Nov 23 at 6pm. It takes a couple of days for the comment to go live, but if you can comment before the 23rd, the consulting group should have your comments to share with the Supervisors at the meeting.
