Every ten years upon the release of the decennial census data, the City of Watsonville must redraw its seven (7) City Council districts based on the new census data and criteria set forth in state law and the City Charter. Click here to learn more.
The Council will establish a seven-member Community Redistricting Advisory Committee by resolution on May 25, 2021. The Committee will receive public input and recommend new district boundaries to the City Council.
Community members will submit an application for the District they wish to represent. The Council Member for such District will make the recommendation for the Council for appointment at the May 25, 2021, meeting. Click here to access the interactive map.
The Community Redistricting Advisory Committee will be subject to the Brown Act. Time and place will be accessible to the public.
The Advisory Committee will serve until the recommendation is submitted to the Council for approval. The Advisory Committee members will be expected to serve approximately 8 -10 hours per month.
All members must live within City limits to participate on the Committee (proof of address will be required).
