Redistricting is different than most issues that come before the City. Instead of being limited to saying you support or oppose a City-prepared ordinance or resolution, you can draw a map yourself! The City’s map drawing tools will be available after the California data is released. In the meantime, residents can submit feedback on their communities of interest and neighborhood boundaries via the Contact Page.

There are different tools for different purposes, and different tools for different levels of technical skill and interest. A variety of map-drawing tools will be available.

Submit maps to If you would like to submit a map created using your own software, please email to and include: (1) a GIS Shapefile and/or a Census Block equivalency file (using 2020 Census Blocks); and, (2) a description of the choices and key points of your map. After you submit your map, the demographic consultants will generate the population and other demographic details for your proposed map.  Maps can be viewed on the Draft Maps page or on the Interactive Review Map.
