Help shape the future of City of Modesto’s City Council Districts
The City of Modesto’s Citizens’ Districting Commission is currently redistricting the City Council boundaries, and they are looking for your input. Every ten years, U.S. Census data is used to redraw district boundaries, and the redistricting process is intended to help ensure the districts are balanced for changes in population. The Citizen’s Districting Commission wants to hear from you on how these boundaries should be drawn.
Please complete this survey to tell the Citizens’ Districting Commission about your community of interest – keeping communities of interest together is a critical for the redistricting process.
