LA Redistricting Commission Meeting: December 15th

Bill Rosendahl

From Councilman Rosendahl:

The City of Los Angeles’ Redistricting Commission is holding a series of public meetings for residents to give input on updated boundaries for City Council districts, Councilmember Bill Rosendahl announced today.

Every 10 years, the City is required to redraw its council district maps and make sure each district has roughly the same number of residents.  An appointed Redistricting Commission will take testimony throughout the city and draft maps as well as solicit additional testimony, and then send the revised maps to the council for approval.

“I am blessed with a beautiful, compact district that is not gerrymandered in anyway,” Rosendahl said. “I hope to keep it that way, and I encourage residents of the 11th District to get involved with the process and let their voices be heard.”

The commission will hold 15 initial public hearings. The Westside meeting will be 6:30 p.m. Thursday, December 15, at the IMAN Center, 3376 Motor Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, 90034.

Those who cannot attend the meeting can download a public comment form and submit it to the redistricting commission via email or USPS.

Rosendahl appointed Mar Vista resident Rob Kadota who will serve as Vice Chair of the commission.

“We’re trying to make sure the commission understands communities,” says Kadota. “It’s important for the public to attend to make sure we protect their community and that we don’t divide and compromise their identity.”
