SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - On Wednesday, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors will have a special meeting to discuss redistricting.

Supervisors will be looking at two sets of maps.

Map A would have the most changes to the district lines and it would also give District 1 a chance to include rural communities.

Map B follows more traditional supervisor boundaries.

“Every year that ends in a one, we readjust boundaries in districts that have elected representatives. locally what we're doing is redrawing the lines for the supervisorial districts to make sure each county supervisor represents the same number of people in their districts,” said Cathy Darling Allen, the Shasta County Clerk.

Supervisors need to adopt a map no later than Dec. 15.

Wednesday's special board meeting starts at 6 p.m.

There will also be two more public hearings, one on Nov. 16 and another on Dec. 7.

The Shasta County Office of Elections says redistricting will not impact the recall election for District 2 Supervisor Leonard Moty.
