As published by the Union Tribune 10/22/2021: A volunteer panel redrawing San Diego’s City Council district boundaries has unveiled a preliminary map that would keep UC San Diego connected to La Jolla and divide Clairemont among four council districts.

The map would also unite Normal Heights in District 9, unite Linda Vista in District 2, re-connect Park Village with Rancho Penasquitos in District 5 and reorganize several southeastern neighborhoods based on ethnicity and social connections. It also would sever University City from La Jolla and UCSD, connecting the community instead to Mira Mesa and the Convoy area in a dramatically redrawn District 6 that would be 38.3 percent Asian.

Now is the time to get involved; the next meeting is Thursday, October 28.
