Every ten years, districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. This process, called redistricting, is important in ensuring that each city councilmember represents about the same number of constituents. In Chino, the City Council is responsible for drawing council districts. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is released around March 31, 2021 (Due to COVID-19, this date will likely be extended). For the City of Chino, the redistricting process must be completed by April 17, 2022.
Redistricting determines which neighborhoods and communities are grouped together into a district for purposes of electing a councilmember. The City Council will seek input in selecting the next district map for our City Council. You have an opportunity to share with the City Council how you think district boundaries should be drawn to best represent your community. You can contact the City Clerk by email to find out more about how the process works.
You can find a map of the City’s current council districts on the Voting Districts page.
To the extent practicable, district lines will be adopted using the following criteria:
The City Council will reach out to local media to publicize the redistricting process. Also, we will make a good faith effort to notify community groups of various kinds about the redistricting process. Our public hearings will be provided in applicable languages if residents submit a request in advance. The City Council will notify the public about redistricting hearings, post maps online before adoption, and create a dedicated web page for all relevant information about the redistricting process.
The City Council will be holding hearings to receive public input on where district lines should be drawn. This page will be updated when the future public hearing dates are scheduled. You can also submit public comments, including suggested draft maps, by emailing the City Clerk.
