Rohnert Park, CA (March 14, 2022) –  The Rohnert Park City Council completed its redistricting process by adopting Resolution No. 2022-032, establishing a new City Council district map. The five-district map can be reviewed online on the City’s website.


Councilmembers will continue to serve under the same election cycle with Council seats for districts 2 and 5 being up for election in November 2022, and districts 1, 3 and 4 up for reelection in 2024.


The City began the redistricting process in October 2021 and hired Wagaman Strategies to serve as the demographer and Tripepi Smith to assist with outreach efforts. The City launched the process by creating its redistricting website,  The website provides background information about redistricting, a schedule of upcoming meetings, mapping tools, draft maps submitted throughout the process and answers to frequently asked questions.


“The redistricting process is about the people,” said Mayor Jackie Elward. “They trusted us, and want to keep the sections together in the new districts. The final map does this, reflecting what the community wants.”


To gather public input and insights on the redistricting process, the City of Rohnert Park held four public hearings and one community workshop:


·         October 26, 2021 - First Public Hearing

·         December 4, 2021 - Community Workshop

·         January 11, 2021 - Second Public Hearing

·         February 8, 2022 - Third Public Hearing

·         March 8, 2022 - Fourth Public Hearing


The community workshop gave residents an opportunity to learn more about the redistricting process, share their input on communities of interest and explain how they would like their district boundaries to be drawn. The City’s demographer also demonstrated how to use the mapping tools that were made available for the public to use to create maps.


At the public hearings, the City Council received an overview of the process, established core communities of interest, reviewed public comments and discussed draft maps submitted by the public and created by the demographer.


In addition to public meetings, the City encouraged Rohnert Park community members and community-based organizations to participate through redistricting emails, social media posts and flyers. Throughout the public map-drawing period, Rohnert Park received 19 community-drawn draft maps and several public comments from members of the public regarding their preferred district boundaries and draft maps. In addition to the maps submitted by the public, the City’s demographer produced six draft maps.


At the fourth public hearing on March 8, 2022, the City Council selected the final map to be adopted via resolution.
