City Council Redistricting Maps due Tuesday 1-17 at noon

January 16th, 2012

Earlier this week, the Los Angeles City Council Redistricting Commission (LACCRC) completed its first round of public hearings with nearly 2,000 Angelenos, from all 15 City Council Districts!

Next week, on Wednesday, Jan. 18th, the Commission will meet with the public at LA City Council Chambers beginning at 4PM to receive public generated proposed map plans.

This meeting will serve as an opportunity for the public to present new, altered, or existing City Council district map plans. Single districts generated by the public should consist of a total population of 252,841; this number reflects the ideal population as based upon 2010 census data. Additionally, the Commission welcomes individuals and organizations to present maps on an single, regional or citywide basis.

There will be a 10 minute time limit for individuals or organizations presenting single or regional City Council District maps and a 20 minute time limit for individuals or organizations presenting citywide maps.

To schedule your presentation, please RSVP by emailing the Commission’s Outreach Director, Rani Woods, at Rani.Woods@lacity.org Please list your name and affiliation, if applicable. You will receive a RSVP confirmation via email within 24 hours. All organizations that do not RSVP will be scheduled on a first come first serve basis on Wednesday.

Please make sure to bring copies of your maps and supporting documents with you. Organizations that wish to give a Power Point presentation, must submit files electronically to the Commission’s Executive Director, Andrew Westall, at Andrew.Westall@lacity.org by 12:00PM on Tuesday, January 17.

For parking arrangements, please contact your City Councilmember’s office directly.

Please note: A decision was made by the Commission at their most recent business meeting to cancel the group presentation hearing on Tuesday, January 17 at Van Nuys City Hall. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and short notice.
