Board of Supervisors approves new district maps

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego County Board of Supervisors gave final approval Tuesday to new district maps, ending a seven-month-long process.

The county's Redistricting Ordinance passed unanimously as part of the supervisors' consent agenda, with the only comments being to thank those who served on a commission that created three tentative maps.

The final map, which will be used for next year's elections, pushes the district represented by Ron Roberts toward the coast and La Jolla, snapping up some territory currently held by the retiring Pam Slater-Price. It also creates a district, currently represented by Greg Cox, with a voting-age population that is nearly 44 percent Latino and 8 percent black.

The district boundaries are redrawn every 10 years in accordance with updated census data.
