Community of Interest Form

  1. Use your voice to help shape the future of City of Woodland’s Council Districts.
    Every ten years, U.S. Census data is used to redraw Council district boundaries. This ensures the Council districts are balanced due to changes in population.
    The City wants your input on how these boundaries should be drawn.


    What is redistricting?
    By law, district boundaries are set using the following criteria in this order of priority:
         (1) Council districts shall be geographically contiguous.
         (2) The geographic integrity of any local neighborhood or local community of interest shall be respected in a manner that minimizes its division. A “community of interest” is a population that shares common social or economic interests that should be included within a single district for purposes of its effective and fair representation. Communities of interest do not include relationships with political parties, incumbents, or political candidates.
         (3) Council district boundaries should be easily identifiable and understandable by residents.
         (4) Council districts shall be drawn to encourage geographical compactness.
         (5) District boundaries shall not be drawn for the purpose of favoring or discriminating against a political party.


    What is a Community of Interest?
    In simple terms, a COI is a group of people in the same geographically definable area who share common social and economic interests. Some examples are people who live downtown or in a neighborhood, senior citizens, residents who share a common language. A COI can be any size, large or small, and does not need to be the same size as a district. Often multiple COIs are included in one district.
