2020 City Council Redistricting

In Progress

Overview

The City Clerk sets the Council District boundaries every four years (per City Charter) to ensure districts remain comparable in population as the city grows. The districts were last re-aligned in 2016 and the City Clerk is now reviewing the districts ahead of the April 6, 2021 General Municipal Election.

The six City Council Districts must be re-aligned based on population every four years according to City Code 5.1.3-Election Districts and City Charter 2-10(b).  This review must occur in the even-year prior to the odd-year election.  The districts were last re-aligned in 2016 and it is now time to review the districts prior to the April 6, 2021 General Municipal Election for a four-year term of all six City Council District seats.
