Some of Pasadena’s voting districts may have new boundaries when a redistricting process is completed next year.
Pasadena is divided geographically into seven council districts, with one city council member elected from each. Following state and federal law, these districts are reviewed every 10 years based on new U.S. Census data.
Pasadena’s newly appointed Redistricting Task Force, made up of nine community volunteers appointed by the mayor and city council in June, will review the Census data, consider the demographics and other characteristics of each district and, with input from the community, recommend a redistricting plan to the city council.
Task force meetings are set for the first and third Wednesdays of each month, at 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers. Here, you can learn about redistricting from experts, ask questions and even submit your own redistricting plan for the task force’s consideration.
For more details, including meeting information, agendas, minutes, and history on Pasadena redistricting, check out www.cityofpasadena.net/redistricting or call the City Clerk’s Office at 744-4124.
The task force will complete its review and make recommendations to the city council in spring 2012.
