Redistricting

The Redistricting Process

Every ten years, local governments use new data from the Census to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. State law requires cities to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and doing public outreach, including to underrepresented and non-English-speaking communities. The City Council is responsible for adopting district boundaries based on U.S. Census data and input from the public. The final district map created through this process will determine council district boundaries for the next 10 years.

There are many ways to participate in redistricting and we invite you to get involved!

How to participate?

We invite you to share your specific thoughts, draw a map, or attend an upcoming workshop to get involved!

Draw and Submit Maps

The City of Camarillo has made public mapping tools to assist the public in drawing maps. You can use the tools below to create maps of your community, ideal council district, or all 5 city council districts.

*Please note that final U.S. Census data reports the total population of 70,850. Each district must have essentially equal population. The population of each of the 5 districts must be close to 14,170, with no more than a 1,417 difference between the largest and smallest.

[PLEASE NOTE:  The U.S. Census delay in providing 2020 numbers has caused delays in updates to these online mapping tools. We request your patience and understanding that the online tool to draw a map is currently in the process of being updated from 2010 Census numbers to 2020 Census numbers. Please take note of this if you plan to use this tool to submit a map to ensure that the tool has the updated 2020 Census numbers prior to submitting your map for consideration. Thank you!]
