Second Choice: NDC’s Map Plan 704. Third Choice: NDC’s Map Plan 702 Map Plan 704 NDC’s review of NDC’s Map 704 identifies this map as having “Four Districts Cross, District 3 Minimally” and further states, “Splits the Mathilda neighborhood” (see Page 142 of Agenda Item A.1, Subj: Recommendations to the City Council regarding Draft Maps for City Council Voting Districts Boundaries for District Elections, meeting date January 26, 2022: hereinafter “Agenda Item A.1”). Additionally, Page 148 of Agenda Item A.1 reads in relevant part as, “All four districts cross over the freeway; Population deviation: 5.7%, District Latino CVAP: 30%, 24%, 31%, 16%; All four districts are contiguous; Splits the Ellwood Beach / Mathilda neighborhood; Does not adhere as closely to general plan subareas as communities of interest, but splits them fairly significantly; Does not split the airport noise corridor, but does split one “demographic outlier” (Ellwood Beach / Mathilda); Only some district boundaries follow the railroad and major streets; District 4 may not be compact.” On a related side note, I am a big proponent of offering each incumbent City Councilmember the opportunity to finish their elected four-year term in the newly formed district where they currently live. Page 5 of Agenda Item A.1 states, “Other traditional considerations that are permitted but not required include: Respect voters’ choices / continuity in office for incumbents, and future population growth.” CDG January 26, 2022 at 11:58 amLog in to Reply Dear PEC: Please spend considerable time analyzing the demographics between each of the draft maps with public comments received including analyzing data such as percent minorities, percent renters, percent multi-family housing, percent with BA or higher education, etc., from the Interactive Review Map @ https://ndcresearch.maps.arcgis.com/apps/View/index.html?appid=8d7cbd5588914037bd8e46188cb905b6 in order to select a suitable theme in line with the public comments.
