The City of Duarte has made available an online public mapping tool and a public participation kit to assist the public in drawing maps. Please see the links below for access to the online mapping tool and the user guide for this tool:
A simple online map drawing tool to easily draw neighborhoods or communities of interest: Dave’s Redistricting App is an easy-to-use map drawing tool to create and submit redistricting maps.

- Read DRA 2020 User Guide
- Select a map to start from and click “Duplicate.” The site will take you to your personal “My Maps” list and your map will show (be patient, this takes a few seconds). Rename your map keeping “Duarte” in the title. Click “Edit” to begin drawing/editing. When finished, go back to “My Maps,” select your map, and choose “Publish.” (You may adjust the title and description before you submit.) Send an email to email@example.com notifying that your plan is published (please include your plan name).
Paper Map Public Participation Kit: The public participation kit will allow you to submit a paper map without having to use the online mapping tool. Please print out the following page (available in either English or Spanish). Each census tract has the population of the tract posted on the map. Please use a pen or magic marker to show where you would like to see the proposed district lines.
Submit maps to firstname.lastname@example.org. After you submit your map, the demographic consultants will generate the population and other demographic details for your proposed map. Maps can be viewed on the Draft Maps page or on the Interactive Review Map. It is helpful if you submit written comments with your map describing how your map was drawn to meet the required criteria. An example of this would be describing the specific neighborhoods or communities of interest that are kept within a single district.
