Like:
Clean lines. Districts 3-4-5 don't cross El Camino Real. Districts 2-3-6 border the RR tracks (don't cross over the tracks).



Dislike:
No major issues for me.



Like:
I'm OK with extending District 6 to include Peery Park. (I live in District 6.)


Dislike:
Don't like the big chunk south of ECR in District 6: doesn't seem a natural fit. (I live in District 6.)
Don't like the bit of District 3 north of ECR, although this is less objectionable than the District 6 concern.
Don't think the concept of having all but one district meet about Fairoaks and Old SF Rd makes much sense: that is not downtown or the city center in any meaningful way. Not sure about the bit of District 1 south of the RR tracks.


Dislike:
Not crazy about the messy board between Districts 1 and 4.
The bits of District 6 crossing ECR are tolerable, although not great.
Not crazy about the bit of District 3 crossing ECR.
Don't really support the goal of trying to make all but one district reach to a more or less common point.


Like:
Districts abut and don't cross ECR, except District 6, where it makes sense to me.
The RR track crossings of Districts 1 & 5 work.
My 2nd favorite map.



Dislike:
Nothing objectionable.

Dislike:
It takes what I consider part of my Nimitz neighborhood and lumps us with the neighborhood across Sunnyvale-Saratoga Road, which is Birdland. I feel the houses along Yukon and its side streets should be together with the homes in District 4. I walk to Serra Park frequently but have never been to Ortega Park in my 40 years as a Sunnyvale resident. I live just off Yukon and formerly lived on Parkington.


Like:
I like that my home is now in District 5 with the rest of my Nimitz neighbors.


Dislike:
I dislike that District 5 is cut off at Cheyenne. I believe the homes on Yukon and the parallel streets from Sunnyvale-Saratoga Road to Hollenbeck all the way to Homestead Road should also be in District 5. These people are my actual neighbors so it makes no sense that they are in a different district than me. It’s also wrong that the homes on Remington Drive are in the district with homes all the way to Highway 101. Why was this section carved out in this manner?


Like:
I like that my home on Castlerock is in 5 along with my Nimitz neighbors. I also like that the odd section of homes starting with Remington Drive are now back in 5 instead of 6.


Dislike:
I still dislike that part of Nimitz from Cheyenne to Homestead is carved out and included with 3. These homes should not be adjoined with what is essentially Birdland. I’m confused about the insistence to separate out this section of my neighborhood. These people are my actual neighbors and I walk by their homes every day and attend our annual potluck at Nimitz Elementary with them.


Like:
I like that my Nimitz neighborhood is intact on this map. But we don’t belong in 2; we belong in 3–and without getting chopped up at Cheyenne as the previous maps do.


Dislike:
I don’t want my Nimitz neighborhood (I live on Castlerock) connected to Birdland (now District 2 on this map), which is across Sunnyvale-Saratoga Road. Nimitz has more connection to Serra Park and the homes there than to Ortega Park IMO. I believe Nimitz belongs entirely in District 3.

It follows geographic lines the best which would be less biased.

more biased

Like:
The numbering scheme makes better sense as well as the neighborhoods seem to be logically together. There is no choppiness and about street divisions either


Dislike:
The District Nos. on this one make no sense. Also District 6 seems to jump all over the place both sides of Central Expressway and both sides of El Camino Real.


Dislike:
I don't like that a small portion of Knickerbocker Avenue will be District 6 versus it being with District 5 Also what's the purpose of having the Districts numbered as they are -- Seems to make sense to number starting at the top of the Map -- all Maps should have the same general area with the same district no. instead of hopping all over the place. I can see this being an issue in the future.


Dislike:
Nos. for districts are not good Should be orderly. Appears that Map 107A was the only one that laid out the information in a logical manner

Comments:
The structure of the districts are not as logical as 107A and the numbering system for each district is confusing. District 1 should be at the top and then 2, 3, etc.

Karl Voelker inside Sunnyvale October 31, 2019, 11:48 AM

Like:
The district boundaries are simple.


Dislike:
I'm skeptical that having downtown in one district is a good idea. What's the motive behind that? It also makes the district boundaries more complicated.


Dislike:
The district boundaries are complex. Aligning council districts to school district boundaries is silly because school districts are governed separately.


Like:
The district boundaries are fairly simple.


Dislike:
School district boundaries are irrelevant.

Like:
107 A:I like district 1 n 2 keeping folks together


Dislike:
107A :I do not like how district 4, 5, 6 are chopped up on different streets and not all communities of interest equally respected. This is my least favorite map.


Like:
120 A: I like how neighborhood associations are kept together n down town is together .
This is my favorite map since all sensibility are preserved


Dislike:
120 A: Nothing. I love this respectful balanced map the best.


Like:
120 C: I like the cohesiveness of school districts, mobile homes and San Miguel n SNAIL


Dislike:
120 C: nothing


Like:
121 A: Cohesiveness of school districts, mobile homes and San Miguel n SNAIL
Breaks using El Camino



Dislike:
121 A: It does not give equal weight to all communities of interest

Comments
I want 7 districts with no directly elected mayor so more communities of interest can be served as required by CVRA

Douglas Daetz inside Sunnyvale October 31, 2019, 12:48 AM

Like:
The points in the description
The relatively simple (=easy to grasp) boundary lines
The numbering of the districts seems more logical (basically a counter-clockwise numbering)
The many kinds of data analyzed


Dislike:
More complicated boundary lines than 107A
Numbering of the districts is disjointed (why should #3 be between #4 and #5; why should #2 and #3 be on opposite sides of the city)
Greater population deviations from ideal than map 107A


Dislike:

Numbering of the districts is disjointed (why should #3 be between #4 and #5; why should #2 and #3 be on opposite sides of the city)

Like:
Like that neighborhoods seem to give voting power to minorities in North S'unnyvale. also that districts are easier to address problems of locals.


Dislike:
district 6 seems disjointed. Along with district 3, area north of El Camino.


Like:
seems that districts with similar neighbor hoods are kept together


Dislike:
districts 1 & 5 need to have better boundries .
