The Community College System in California includes 72 districts, all with differing cultures and needs. The Community College League is an advocacy group for the system and a provider of district services. They supply everything from board training to administration and even direct access energy.
In 2011 the League has created a District Services program to provide redistricting support for districts across the state. Redistricting Partners was brought into the development of this service and will be servicing contracts for the League.
Current Community College District Clients include:

The City of Elk Grove has undergone significant population growth since their first set of district lines were created in 2004. To add to the challenge, the city recently passed a measure to transition to a full-time mayor and reduce their council from 5 to 4 members.
The city is working with Redistricting Partners to create new district lines. The process includes demographic analysis of the community, meetings with the public to help them develop community plans, and a final product that will bring people closer to their local government.
Redistricting Partners was selected after a competitive bid process which included both Democratic consultant Paul Mitchell and Republican consultant Matt Rexroad. This bi-partisan approach to local redistricting has already won praise on PublicCEO.com.

The Valley Industry and Commerce Association (VICA) is an advocacy group within the San Fernando Valley. In this year’s redistricting process they are working with the commission to increase the local representation for Valley residents. In past redistricting the Valley has been cut up in a way that most of its representation came from people who were not from the Valley. By using the Prop 11 and 20 rules, presenting data and plans to the commission, and organizing the community, VICA will shape the politics in the Valley for the next decade.
