Half Moon Bay must re-draw its district boundaries using the new 2020 Census data. This process is called redistricting. All cities with district-based election systems, such as Half Moon Bay, must redistrict after each Census. This keeps population counts within each district relatively equal to ensure equal representation. Half Moon Bay adopted district boundaries in 2018 using 2010 Census total population counts. We must now reevaluate using the new census data.
In 2018, the City of Half Moon Bay approved a transition from at-large to by-district elections, with the mayor to be elected at-large. The current map of City Council Districts and other documents from the transition can be viewed here.
View DrawHMB.org, where you can review the existing district boundary maps, make your own suggested adjustments when public mappings opens, and submit them to the Redistricting Advisory Committee.
