Update for 12/12/2021: On December 12, 2021, the Commission released information about Preliminary Map 92973 at https://districtr.org/plan/92973. If Preliminary Map 92973 is approved and adopted (and it’s expected that it will be), the University City triangle remains whole and moves to City Council District 6. For more information on the map and supporting documents for the December 15 and December 16 meetings, please click on the Redistricting Commission Meetings tab.
The City Charter requires the creation of a Redistricting Commission at the beginning of each decade, after the U.S. Census, to adopt plans which specify the boundaries of districts for the City Council. This process takes place independently of the City Council and Mayor’s Office. Districts must be comprised of contiguous territory and made as equal in population as shown by the Census reports, and as geographically compact as possible. It also requires that the districts shall, as far as possible, be bounded by natural boundaries, street lines, and/or City boundary lines.
The Charter requires that the districts be drawn to provide fair and effective representation for all citizens of the City, including racial, ethnic, and language minorities. Additionally, to the extent possible, they preserve identifiable communities of interest. The redrawing of district boundaries is designed to ensure local legislatures are representative of the City’s diverse population.
