Public meetings planned for AC Transit redistricting process

Submitted By AC Transit

Federal and state laws require the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) to adjust its ward boundaries every 10 years to equalize populations following the completion of the federal decennial census.

To aid in the redistricting process, the agency's Redistricting Committee and staff have developed proposals that will be vetted at a series of outreach meetings. Community members, elected officials and interested parties are encouraged to attend the meetings and offer their views and recommendations.

At these meetings, the proposed boundary configurations - with descriptions, maps and demographics - will be displayed for public comment. Individuals who are unable to attend the meetings can find the redistricting plans on the District's website at www.actransit.org (click on "Ward Redistricting").

The public can also offer input and request additional information about the process and the proposed plans by emailing districtsecretary@actransit.org. The District's wards are also available via the web at www.redrawca.org (click on "See Local Lines" and select Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District). At this site, the public can delineate communities of interest, draft plans and submit them to the District Secretary.

The deadline to submit comments on the initial redistricting plans is October 28, 2011.
