Rancho Santiago College trustees have approved new district boundaries after complaints from Latino groups whose members opposed an earlier redistricting as unfair. The trustees on Monday unanimously approved the new boundaries, designed to alleviate the disparity between the numbers of residents each trustee represents. Under the new plan, the representation target for each trustee will be 72,659 people.

After hearing from a chorus of community leaders who urged that the voting strength of minority areas not be diluted, the Orange County Board of Supervisors adopted a redistricting plan Tuesday that representatives of several ethnic groups vowed to challenge in court. The plan, which was proposed by a supervisor-appointed committee, will define the electoral boundaries of the five supervisorial districts for the next decade and set the course of county politics.

Several proposals to change the boundary lines of Orange County's five supervisorial districts could dilute the clout of south County cities opposed to an El Toro airport. The maps are among a dozen options for new district lines to be unveiled Wednesday at a public hearing in Laguna Hills. A redistricting committee composed of representatives from each supervisorial office will make its recommendations this month to the Board of Supervisors.

County officials got their first taste Wednesday of what is likely to be a lively debate over how to redraw Orange County's political boundaries when a Latino civil rights group submitted its suggested redistricting plan. According to the League of United Latin American Citizens, Orange County's supervisorial boundaries need to be redrawn to preserve Santa Ana's ethnic population in one district, increasing the chances of a Latino being elected to the Board of Supervisors. "It's time.

Now that the numbers are out, the jockeying begins. The release of the 2000 census data officially inaugurates redistricting season--a mad scramble by political parties and pressure groups to carve up California to suit their needs. The state's population grew more slowly than it has in decades, meaning that there will be only one additional congressional seat in California--the smallest gain in 80 years--to accommodate an increasingly diverse array of interests.

Orange County's supervisorial boundaries, long criticized as being more about politics than fair representation, are going to be redrawn, which may shift the balance of power in the county. The chore of realigning districts for the five supervisors is certain to touch everything from the volatile battle over the mothballed El Toro Marine base to Latino representation on the county board.

The Supreme Court decision opening the door to challenges of oddly configured legislative districts is unlikely to have an immediate impact in California, but legal and political experts said it may encourage more lawsuits attacking districts created with race in mind.

There is a new political power in Orange County, and it should emerge in 1992. For the first time, the stucco homes and planned communities that sprouted in South County's canyons and hillsides during the 1980s are expected to have enough voting power to send their own representative to Sacramento. Until now, Newport Beach or San Diego County has held the balance of political power in legislative and congressional districts that include South County.
