LIVERMORE, Calif. – The City of Livermore is beginning a once-in-a-decade redistricting process. The City is launching the process by hosting the first of four public hearings. The first Public Hearing will take place on October 11 at 7:05 p.m. via Zoom (Zoom Meeting ID: 892 5927 5389 or Zoom Dial-In Phone Number: 1 669 900 6833). The first Hearing will include a presentation on redistricting and how community members can get involved.
The City of Livermore has established a schedule for upcoming hearings and workshops:
October 11, 2021, at 7:05 pm – First Public Hearing
October 18, 2021, at 7:00 pm – First Community Workshop
January 24, 2022, at 7:05 p.m. – Second Hearing
February 14, 2022, at 7:05 p.m. – Third Hearing

Every 10 years, local governments use new data from the Census to redraw their district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Members of the Livermore community are invited to participate in the redistricting process to help make sure district lines respect neighborhoods, history, and geographical elements.
During the process, mapping tools will become available for residents to draw what they believe should be the new district lines that define their communities of interest. Communities of interest can include shared interests, social and civic networks, racial and ethnic compositions, cultural identities, socioeconomic status, etc.
To help share information about redistricting and eventually gather draft maps and collect public feedback, the City of Livermore has launched a dedicated redistricting website: drawlivermore.org.
The new website includes background information on redistricting, a schedule of participation opportunities, and frequently asked questions (FAQs). Mapping tools will become available in the future.
As the redistricting process moves forward, the City will continue to update the redistricting website to include additional details on future public hearings, mapping opportunities, FAQs, and more.
