Will Not Release Second Draft Maps in Order to Gather More Public Input Throughout Line Drawing Process and Produce Best Final Maps Possible

  
 
July 10, 2011 (Sacramento) -- The California Citizens Redistricting Commission decided at a recent meeting, that in order to produce the best district maps possible, it would amend its schedule and not release a second round of draft maps.  The Commission will be posting visualizations of proposed districts, and make equivalency files available for organizations and news outlets to provide greater detail to the public on the visualization proposals. The visualizations are proposed options for districts and are considered and discussed by the Commission at their meetings instructing the line drawers.
 
At a previous meeting, the Commission set July 28th as the deadline for submission of public comment on the Commission's second round of draft maps to be released July 14th.  The Commission encourages the public to submit their written comment as soon after July 14th as possible so the testimony can be fully considered.
