Supervisorial redistricting completed
Following the federal government's decennial census, last completed in 2010, the state of California requires redistricting of political district boundaries. The Alameda County Board of Supervisors formally adopted new supervisorial district boundaries on July 26, 2011. The new boundaries took effect on August 25, 2011. The map that was selected by the Board was Map E-1 with boundaries, as follows.
Under the previous map, District 1, represented by Supervisor Scott Haggerty, included the eastern portion of Dublin. Under the new plan, all of Dublin is within District 1, while Pleasanton (including the unincorporated Castlewood and Happy Valley areas) moves from District 1 to District 4.
The boundary of District 2, represented by Supervisor Nadia Lockyer, remains unchanged.
District 3, represented by Supervisor Wilma Chan, gains the Crocker Highlands and Trestle Glen neighborhoods from District 5, bounded generally by the Piedmont city limits, Park Boulevard., I-580 and Grand Avenue, and adds two portions of the Melrose area of East Oakland from District 4. The first of these two areas is bounded by Foothill Boulevard., Seminary Avenue., International Boulevard. and High Street, while the second area is generally bounded by International Boulevard, 73rd Avenue, Coliseum Way/San Leandro Street and Seminary Avenue.
District 4, represented by Supervisor Nate Miley, gives up Dublin to District 1, while gaining all of Pleasanton and the adjacent unincorporated neighborhoods of Castlewood and Happy Valley. In addition, the unincorporated Hillcrest Knolls community and Fairmont area, currently in District 3, move to District 4.
The only change to District 5, represented by Supervisor Keith Carson, is the transfer of the Crocker Highlands and Trestle Glen neighborhoods to District 3.
