Proposed maps for Sacramento County Supervisorial Districts released

Next June, for the first time in 28 years, Don Nottoli's name will not appear on the ballot in Sacramento County's 5th supervisorial district. Regardless of who succeeds him, that person will be running in a reconfigured district that could affect the election's outcome.

Yesterday Sacramento County released three different possible boundary maps for each of the five supervisorial districts. The maps are part of the decennial redistricting process and were prepared by Glendale, Calif.-based NDC Research.

The three draft maps for the entire county can be viewed below.

As it relates to District 5, under the three scenarios, Elk Grove will remain entirely in that district. However, the boundaries of each map for District 5 have differences, most centered around Rancho Cordova. 

In map 201, all of the City of Rancho Cordova is removed. For Republican Supervisorial Pat Hume candidate, this could be a significant setback as the large block of voters there tend to support conservative candidates as seen on their past and current city council members. 

In the second scenario, map 202, most of Ranch Cordova would remain in District 5. A large swath of empty land south of Folsom and on the county's eastern border currently in District 4, presumably land for future housing development, would be added. 

The final scenario, map 203, has District 5 losing all of Rancho Cordova, adding the eastern Sacramento County area as noted in map 202, and adding a portion of the Vineyard area, while losing the Sacramento neighborhoods of Meadowview and Pocket-Greenhaven. This scenario could be more beneficial to Democratic candidate Jaclyn Moreno. 

The county will hold several meetings where the public can provide input (see image above). More information about the public process is available here.
