The City Council district map proposal adopted by the Redistricting Commission on November 23 does not split University City at either Genesee Avenue or Rose Canyon; but does move the University City “Golden Triangle” to Council District 6. The Redistricting Commission must finalize new City Council boundaries by December 15, 2021.
Excerpts from report published by the SD Union Tribune on 11/24/2021: The (Redistricting Commission) panel … declined requests by UC San Diego students to reconsider severing the university from La Jolla so the school can be part of a heavily Asian district to the east. One proposal from UCSD students would … move the university into District 6 and split … University City at Rose Canyon. The commission decided not to have that option analyzed by its consultant.
The panel’s remaining Redistricting Commissions meetings are scheduled on the following dates: Wednesday, December 1; Tuesday, December 7; Thursday, December 9; and December 15.
