Citizens Redistricting Commission, Berkeley

After a lengthy, contentious and expensive 2010 redistricting process, President Nancy Bickel and former Action Coordinator Carol Stone participated in the initial conversations to depoliticize the way Berkeley City Council districts are redrawn after each U.S. Census. At their September 29, 2015 regular meeting the Berkeley City Council approved the proposal, as reviewed and returned by the Open Government Commission. City staff will return to the Council with ballot language for the November 2016 General Election.
