The City has launched its dedicated 2021 City Council Redistricting website at www.mapmarina.org.
Every 10 years, local governments use new data from the Census to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Members of the City of Marina community are encouraged to participate in the redistricting process to make sure district lines respect neighborhoods, history and geographical elements.
To help share information about redistricting, collect public feedback and eventually gather draft maps, the City of Marina has launched a dedicated redistricting website: www.mapmarina.org.
The new website includes background information on redistricting, a tentative schedule of participation opportunities, frequently asked questions, and will include resources for drafting maps and sharing feedback on previously-drawn maps. The City is currently awaiting finalized 2020 Census data from the State of California, which is projected to be available in October 2021. Mapping tools are anticipated to be available this summer.
As the redistricting process moves forward, the City will continue to update the redistricting website to include additional details on future public hearings, mapping opportunities, new FAQs, and more.
