From population to housing to racial diversity, these maps show how and where Berkeley has changed the most over the last decade.
The map the commission chose essentially keeps intact the current City Council district borders, with a few tweaks.
Berkeley’s Independent Redistricting Commission is expected to make its choice for a new map over the coming weeks.
The Black population has dropped 13% since 2010, to about 9,500, while the proportion of Hispanic and Asian residents grew, new numbers show.
An independent commission will now decide district boundaries. New rules mean City Council members can be drawn out of their districts.
It’s not too late: People can fill out their census forms online until Oct. 15.
The citizens’ commission will be in charge of reviewing maps for the eight City Council districts, revised every 10 years after the census.
