(ALAMEDA COUNTY, Calif.) The Alameda County Board of Education is hosting a virtual redistricting meeting Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m.

Potential maps for redistricting will be discussed during the meeting. Under the existing map, District 1 — the largest district — extends from unincorporated Livermore out to Dublin and Fremont. The most recent district map draft would maintain District 1 as the largest supervisor district but would smooth the border to incorporate Pleasanton, which was previously in District 4, and a portion of Sunol which was previously in District 2.

Additionally, the most recent draft would add two supervisor districts to bring the total to seven. The existing districting map had five districts in total. The new draft would separate Albany and Berkeley from Emeryville as the Northwest District. Emeryville, Piedmont and Alameda would make up the North District.

Oakland would make up its own district and the neighboring Northcentral District would extend out to the San Leandro pier. Much of what was District 2 would be split into the Southcentral and Southwest districts.
