Changes could be made before December 15, 2021 deadline. As published by the Union Tribune 11/13/2021: A volunteer panel took a key step toward redrawing San Diego’s City Council boundaries Saturday when they approved a preliminary map that boosts voting power for racial minorities and unites some previously divided neighborhoods.
The panel voted 7-2 in favor of the Clairemont United Compromise Map, which unites Clairemont, Linda Vista, Normal Heights and Rancho Peñasquitos — four neighborhoods divided the last time new boundaries were drawn in 2011.
The Compromise Map would make District 6 a heavily Asian district including University City, but it would leave the university campus in District 1 with La Jolla. While the map boosts the Asian population in District 6, the Latino population in District 9 and the Black population in District 4, it doesn’t boost minority voting power as much as the panel’s second choice — the San Diego Communities Collaboration Map.
San Diego must redraw its council boundaries once every 10 years when new U.S. Census data become available. The panel is charged with creating nine districts that are close to evenly populated, while trying to keep connected communities together.
