2020 City Council Redistricting

Planning Phase

Overview

Every four years the City is required to re-align the six City Council districts to ensure they remain comparable in population as the city grows. 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.

The options

The 2016 district map is being updated to reflect four redistricting possibilities. The goals are to ensure the districts have roughly equal population, are contiguous, are representative of their respective populations, and comply with all applicable laws. There are four different options, with pros and cons for each. Select an option below to see the details. These maps are provided for discussion purposes only, the final maps will be drawn once this public comment period has ended.

The District Process Advisory Committee and the City Clerk need your input

We need your feedback to the proposed changes to the district boundaries. By participating in the redistricting process, you are helping ensure that the City Council boundaries are fair and equitable.

You can provide feedback on the proposed changes to City Council district boundaries in several ways.

Resource Center

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.
