Pasadena residents interested in serving on the Redistricting Task Force are invited to submit applications no later than Tuesday, May 31.
City of Pasadena voting districts are reviewed every 10 years based on new U.S. Census data. The seven district boundaries define the geographic representation of the Pasadena City Council.
California state law provides that after each federal census, and using that data as a basis, the Pasadena City Council must determine whether adjustments to the boundaries of any or all districts are needed.
After a review of all applications, nine residents will be appointed to the task force during the June 13 council meeting based on nominations. The mayor and each council member will nominate one representative and the mayor will nominate one additional at-large representative. The task force will review the Census 2010 data for Pasadena, consider the characteristics of each district, including demographics, and make a recommendation to the council for the potential of adjusting any of the current district boundaries. All meetings will be public and input from the community will be encouraged.
Applications are available at www.cityofpasadena.net/commissions, in room S228 at Pasadena City Hall or by calling (626) 744-4311. Anyone who applies should also notify the councilmember who represents the respective district of that person’s residence. Council district and contact information is available at www.cityofpasadena.net/council.
