Who is responsible for deciding the new supervisorial district boundaries?

In Contra Costa County, the Board of Supervisors is responsible for approving the final map of new supervisorial district boundaries. The effort will be supported by a multi-disciplinary team of staff from the County Administrator’s Office, Elections Office, Department of Conservation and Development, Department of Information and Technology, and other County departments. Ultimately, the Board of Supervisors will take final action on approval of a map that establishes the new supervisorial districts. The Board of Supervisors will hold public hearings and will receive public input. The process will include engagement with communities, including under-represented and non-English speaking communities, through the public hearings and public outreach process that is designed to develop supervisorial district maps that both meet legal requirements and reflect the County’s diversity.

Current Law requires that our redistricting process must be completed by December 15, 2021.
