City of Hesperia Redistricting Process

Every ten years, local governments use new census data to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Assembly Bill 849 (2019) requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public outreach, including to non- English-speaking communities.

What is redistricting?

Every ten years, districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. This process, called redistricting, is important in ensuring that each city councilmember represents about the same numbeCir of constituents. In Hesperia, the City Council is responsible for drawing council districts. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is released around March 31, 2021. For the City of Hesperia, the redistricting process must be completed by April 17, 2022.

You can contact the City Clerk at (760) 947-1056 or cityclerk@cityofhesperia.us to find out more about how the process works.

Ciudad de Hesperia Proceso de Redistribucion de Distritos

Cada diez años, los gobiernos locales utilizan nuevos datos del censo para volver a trazar las líneas de sus distritos para reflejar cómo han cambiado las poblaciones locales. El Proyecto de Ley 849 de la Asamblea (2019) exige que las ciudades y los condados hagan participar a las comunidades en el proceso de redistribución de distritos mediante la celebración de audiencias públicas y/o talleres y la realización de actividades de divulgación pública, incluso en las comunidades no anglófonas.

¿Qué es la redistribución de distritos?

Cada diez años, los distritos deben ser rediseñados para que cada uno de ellos sea sustancialmente igual en población. Este proceso, llamado redistribución de distritos, es importante para asegurar que cada concejal de la ciudad represente aproximadamente el mismo número de conciudadanos. En Hesperia, el Ayuntamiento es responsable de diseñar los distritos del consejo. La redistribución de distritos se hace usando los datos del Censo de los EE.UU., que es publicado alrededor del 31 de marzo de 2021. Para la Ciudad de Hesperia, el proceso de redistribución de distritos debe completarse antes de Abril 17, 2022.

Puedes contactar con el Secretario de la Ciudad en (760)947-1056 o cityclerk@cityofhesperia.us para saber más sobre cómo funciona  el proceso.
