PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER THE REDISTRICTING OF ESTABLISHED CITY COUNCIL DISTRICTS BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THE 2020 DECENNIAL CENSUS ON REDISTRICTING, AND REVIEW OF DRAFT MAP #1 AND DRAFT MAP #2

I. SUMMARY

In 2020, the City of Carson adopted City Council districts for the four City Council seats, with the Mayor's seat remaining at large. Every ten years, districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. This process, called redistricting, is important in ensuring that each city councilmember represents about the same number of constituents. In the City of Carson, the Mayor and City Council are responsible for drawing council districts. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which was released in September 2021. For the City of Carson, the redistricting process must be completed by April 17, 2022.
The City was required to hold two public meetings on the districts during the initial process prior to the publication of any draft redistricting maps being produced. A formal public hearing was held on November 16, 2021 followed by a less-formal public workshop on December 4, 2021 at the Community Center.
Two draft maps have now been produced and were published on the City's redistricting website on January 10, 2022. (Exhibit 1.) The City is now conducting a series of public informational meetings in the parks and a series of public hearings, including this meeting, leading to adoption.
