Fairfield seeks input on redistricting process

The City of Fairfield is launching the redistricting process. It will host four public hearings and one community workshop to solicit ideas on adjusting the district boundaries for electing the council members for the next decade. 

Every ten years, local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. We are asking the community's help to plan, draw, and redevise new City districts. Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped for purposes of electing council members.

The City Council seeks input in selecting the next district map for electing council members. You have an opportunity to share your thoughts with the council on how you expect district boundaries are drawn to best represent your community either during the public hearings or by submitting comments to districtelections@fairfield.ca.gov.

The finalized maps that the public will help us create will define the six City of Fairfield district borders, and these new districts will impact how you elect your councilmembers for the next ten years. 

Our primary goal when developing election districts is to draw lines that respect the neighborhood, history, and geographical elements. So we want to know: What do you consider the boundaries of your neighborhood?
