It is with a sad heart that BNC reports the passing of our Executive Committee Member James Peterson. He was a powerful addition to our team, bringing historical perspective and insight to our work. We will greatly miss his strong, thoughtful, and always humble presence at our meetings, and we will try to keep his spirit alive as we continue to give a voice to our communities. The Post News Group published a nice remembrance.
Submissions due by November 15, 2021
Berkeley’s eight City Council districts are being re-drawn to reflect the population in the 2020 Census. For the first time, an Independent Redistricting Commission will be drawing the new district borders. They are looking to our communities to submit their “Communities of Interest” so that our input can be considered in the new borders being drawn for our City Council districts. Read more about the process here. If you want to submit your own maps, try out the mapping tool or pick up a paper copy at the City Clerk’s office.
The deadline is November 15th, so don’t delay!
