Redwood City Redistricting Committee Election Process


Christian Carlos. Peninsula 360 Press [P360P].

As reported, the City of Redwood City is seeking residents to serve on the Redistricting Advisory Committee (ARC) to advise on the establishment of election boundaries for City Council districts. 

ARC reports that, as of April 26, the City Council voted to establish a Redistricting Advisory Committee. In doing so, it is hoped that the purpose of these elections will reflect the diversity of the community.

To that end, the Committee will work to understand legal requirements and propose best practices for redistricting; it will also engage the public to provide testimony on communities of interest and to create candidate maps for City Council consideration.

In the bulletin, the requirements to register as a candidate are established: 

"An ideal candidate may have knowledge or experience in - but not limited to - the following areas: data and analysis, GIS and mapping, Redwood City's diverse communities, working as a team to achieve a common goal, and community engagement strategies. An ideal candidate is unbiased and committed to ensuring fair representation."

Applications will be received until 11:59 p.m. on June 6, 2021 at www.redwoodcity.org/redistricting/

After the application has been submitted, it is stated that "all applications will be reviewed for eligibility". In light of this, the city council will conduct interviews and make appointments at the June 28, 2021 City Council meeting.

Finally, the committee will meet approximately 15 times during the redistricting process, which must be completed no later than April 17, 2022.
