What is Redistricting?

Every ten years, after each new U.S. Census, local governments who hold district elections must update their district boundaries based on the updated population numbers. This is called redistricting. In Brentwood, the City Council established a hybrid redistricting commission, and transferred all but the last step of the redistricting process to them.

The Brentwood Redistricting Commission will use 2020 Census figures and public input to change the current district boundaries and create City Council election districts that are balanced in population and comply with local, state, and federal laws. When the Commission’s part of the process is complete, it will submit two or more potential boundary maps to the City Council and the Council must then select, without modifying, one of the submitted maps.

How is this year different from when the City created Council election districts in 2019?

Unlike 2019, this year and next, a group of community volunteers will work with Brentwood residents to develop revised election districts. Two or more revised election district maps are then presented to the City Council in early 2022, and the City Council must select one, without any revisions.  The selected map will then be used for the next 10 years for City Council elections.

Why Does it Matter to Me?

Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for purposes of electing councilmembers. Brentwood’s Redistricting Commission will seek the public’s input in drafting the next district map for our City Council. You have an opportunity to share with the Commission how you think district boundaries should be drawn to best represent your community. You can contact City staff at redistricting@brentwoodca.gov to find out more about how the process works.
