What are Communities of Interest?

State law defines a “community of interest" as "a population that shares common social or economic interests that should be included within a single supervisorial district for purposes of its effective and fair representation. Communities of interest do not include relationships with political parties, incumbents, or political candidates."

One of the guidelines for drawing district boundaries is to learn about communities across the County. To the extent practicable, the County will aim to keep each community of interest together in a district. 

Example of Communities of Interest

Examples of potential Community of Interest (COI) that can be considered in redistricting include:
