Background

Every 10 years, the City Charter requires that the Council appoint a committee composed of an equal number of representatives from each Council District to review and make recommendations regarding redistricting the Council Districts based on information from the Federal Census. The Committee is tasked with using the population data from the official 2020 U.S. Census along with any other pertinent information to make a report recommending changes in the Council District boundaries that the Committee decides are necessary based on constitutional principles governing voting rights, population, compactness and other related factors.

The Committee is made up of 18 members - one voting member and one alternate member from each Council District. The Council is required, in appointing a committee that "as nearly as is practicable" be a fair and balanced representation of all geographical areas of the City in the redistricting process and provide a total membership that reflects the racial, ethnic and gender makeup of the City's population.

All meetings of the 2020 Redistricting Committee are subject to the State Open Meetings Act.

The 2022 Redistricting committee was established via R-21-226 and the members appointed via OC-22-1. Per R-21-226, the committee will begin meeting in March 2022, with recommendations due to City Council by July 1st, 2022.

The public can participate in the redistricting process by drawing maps and communities of interest using the tools on this site to draw your own plan, update existing concepts under committee consideration, or let the committee know about your community.

In order for a plan to be considered by the committee, make sure your map fits the following criteria.

  • All districts are contiguous – meaning that all precincts assigned to a district are touching at least one other precinct assigned to that district.
  • The maximum population deviation does not exceed 5.00% (i.e. does not exceed +/- 5% deviation from the ideal population).

The committee will consider a plan (that meets the above criteria) or community of interest submitted on this site, if it is introduced by the creator during the public comment section of a meeting, or if it is introduced via the Public Comments form below, on this webpage. If submitting a plan or community of interest in the form below, please include the plan URL (plan link) in the “Your Comments” box.
