Next Saturday the City of Redwood City will hold a community redistricting workshop. The event will be held on October 9 at 10:00 a.m. (Pacific Time) via the Zoom platform.
"We hope to share a brief summary of how we moved to district elections, why we need to redraw the current City Council District Map and how to get involved to make your voice heard throughout the process."
Like a jigsaw puzzle that requires all the pieces to complete, organizers said, all community voices need to be heard to ensure that future City Council districts best represent residents.
The workshop will begin with a presentation by the City's redistricting consultant, followed by a demonstration of the online mapping tool; after the presentation, a session will be opened for questions and comments from participants' communities of interest.
