Map coming soon

Yesterday’s special meeting on redistricting focused on the redistricting process and did not reveal what any new council districts might look like. That map – the final one, in fact – will be released either late next week or early the following week, City Clerk Katherine Gong Meissner said last night.

Stockton’s process has unfolded mostly out of public view. Yesterday’s meeting, which was sparsely attended by mostly city staff, a couple of political observers and a few council members, mostly focused on the uneven population growth data released in recent weeks.

The process has been quite different in other cities. There has been much public involvement in San Jose, for instance (its city charter requires appointment of an advisory committee), and also in Sacramento.

So far, Stockton has only released this demographics document and held one meeting. City officials yesterday said they soon will post redistricting questions and answers on the city’s website. It takes time, City Attorney John Luebberke said, because the process is very technical.
