City of Sacramento Redistricting 2021

The Sacramento Independent Redistricting Commission (SIRC) has been engaged in a public process for approximately one year to redistrict the City of Sacramento. The SIRC invited the public to submit maps for consideration in the development of new district boundaries. The Sacramento Independent Redistricting Commission on December 1, 2021, directed staff to create two redistricting maps for further analysis and deliberation. Each map is the result of the merger of publicly submitted maps. Map A combines elements of Sac_011 and Sac_017 and Map B combines elements from Sac_011, Sac_017 and Sac_021.

The Public is encouraged to participate in meetings and provide comments and input on the maps.

What is Redistricting?

Every 10 years, after the U.S. Census, the City of Sacramento must re-establish the boundaries for City Council districts. The resulting council district boundaries must be balanced in population in accordance with local, state, and federal rules governing the redistricting process.

In 2020, the Sacramento Independent Redistricting Commission was formed to set council district boundaries.
