Committee email and ex parte communications


To express your comments and opinions about a topic to the entire Advisory Districting Committee, including staff liaisons, please email the Advisory Districting Committee

NOTE: All communications to the Advisory Districting Committee and/or city staff are public communications subject to the provisions of the California Public Records Act. Copies of communications to the Advisory Districting Committee via email may be printed and included as an attachment to staff reports and/or placed in files accessible to the general public.

At each meeting of the Committee, Committee members are required to disclose any and all ex parte communications as required by Resolution No. 6418. Committee members shall disclose all contact regarding the Committee’s subject matter jurisdiction that occurs outside of a publicly noticed meeting, including email and related conversations.

Roles and responsibilities


The Committee shall present two recommendations to the City Council
  • a recommendation for dividing the City into five voting districts, and
  • a recommendation for dividing the City into six voting districts (with an at-large elected mayor).
Each submitted districting map shall also contain an election sequencing recommendation. Election sequencing shall take into account the City’s practice of staggering elections every two years and in accordance with State law shall not cut short any existing City Councilmember’s term.

Final recommendation


On February 22, 2018, the Committee finalized its recommendations which will be presented to the City Council at a public hearing tentatively scheduled for March 21, 2018.
