How to Participate

How will our City Council notify the public about redistricting?

The City Council will reach out to local media to publicize the redistricting process. Also, we will make a good faith effort to notify community groups of various kinds about the redistricting process. Our public workshops and public input hearings will be provided in applicable languages (e.g., Spanish) if residents submit a request 72 hours in advance. The City Council will notify the public about redistricting public workshops and public input hearings, post maps online before adoption, and create a dedicated web page for all relevant information about the redistricting process.

How can I get involved?

The City Council will be holding public hearings and public input workshops to receive public input on where ward lines should be drawn. Those public workshops and public input hearings will be held on:

Public Comment Form

City of San Bernardino Redistricting Process

Public Comment Form on Communities of Interest

Input from the public is critical to help inform the Mayor and City Council about your Community of Interest.  The City of San Bernardino has prepared this Public Comment Form to provide the public with a way of submitting information on characteristics that may define your Community of Interest.

The concept of protecting Communities of Interest is to draw boundaries in a manner that preserves communities that share common interests and that should be included within a single ward for purposes of their effective and fair representation. There are many types of common interests that may identify a Community of Interest. For example, communities may be defined by the location of geographic boundaries or features, such as a residential subdivision, parks, lakes, mountains or freeways. Communities may share a common culture or language. Communities may be defined by their neighborhood, or by the location of cultural, religious or educational institutions. Certain public services, like public schools and public transit may also help define a community.

If you would like the Mayor and City Council to consider a particular Community of Interest, we invite you to complete and submit a Public Comment Form, to speak at a public hearing or to submit your written comments to the City. All personal information listed on this form is voluntary and will become a part of the City of San Bernardino’s public record. The public is not required to fill out all of the questions below, but the more information the City gathers, the better informed the process of redrawing City Council ward boundaries will be.

Complete the form to submit public comments, including draft map suggestions.

Do you have concerns about the current boundaries of your Council Ward?

Thanks for sharing!
