San Diego Board of Supervisors to consider new district maps

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego County Board of Supervisors will consider Tuesday whether to adopt new maps for their district boundaries.

The five proposed districts were formed by a commission that used 2010 census data, but the supervisors make the final decisions.

The biggest change from the current configuration involves the landlocked area represented by Ron Roberts, which would move toward the coast and take La Jolla from Pam Slater-Price. The other districts would make minor adjustments.

County staff members are scheduled to address a plan put forth by the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties, which says the proposed new districts violate the Voting Rights Act. The plan was submitted late, and staff has needed extra time to go over the new data.

The supervisors will also hear a presentation on how the realignment of state and local government functions enacted by Gov. Jerry Brown will affect the county, and they will consider limiting how many roosters will be allowed per property in unincorporated areas.
