CHICO, Calif. - The City of Chico has released initial redistricting draft plans, as well as public plans, showing new possible districts for the city.
The initial draft plans were drawn by the demographer, following public comment and council direction.
Nine public plans were submitted by seven different people.
Statistics in both plans anticipate city boundaries as of the 2020 election, also including the areas of Chapmantown and Mulberry.
Also released were breakdowns of both public and initial map demographics.
On Jan. 7, the council will hold the first of three public hearings to listen to feedback on the districts. This will also allow for comment on map alternatives.
The following meetings will be on Feb. 4 and Feb. 11 to review and choose district maps and introduce an ordinance establishing district-based elections.
