Ventura, Calif. — The City of Ventura continues its redistricting process and encourages residents to participate in the district maps creation phase, open through December 10, 2021.
Residents are invited to draw proposed district boundaries and submit recommendations by print in the City Clerk’s Office or electronically with map drawing tools available online at www.CityofVentura.ca.gov/Redistricting.
Using the online mapping tool called DRA, users can submit maps electronically. All maps received will be reflected as a “layer” on the interactive review map.
Community members can also pick-up printed maps, available in English and Spanish, in the City Clerk’s Office at Ventura City Hall, located at 501 Poli Street in Room 204.
Community feedback for redrawn districts must use the 2020 U.S. Census data and comply with the Fair Maps Act, adopted by the California legislature as AB 849 effective January 1, 2020. For details on the Fair Maps Act Criteria, visit www.CityofVentura.ca.gov/Redistricting.
