City Council Redistricting Town Hall Series Provides Multiple Opportunities for Public Feedback
City Council today approved a resolution that outlines principles for the 2022 City Council redistricting process based on population data from the 2020 Census.
Each City Council district will host a town hall meeting to explain the redistricting process and to allow members of the public to give input to the City on how they want their district to look in the future. There will be multiple opportunities for residents to comment and get updates.
The Capital Improvement Project (CIP) meetings will follow the Redistricting town hall meetings at the same scheduled time and locations.
“We are privileged to live in one of the most wonderfully diverse cities in the world,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner. “As Houston continues to grow, we must ensure fair and equitable representation for all Houstonians.”
The redrawn districts will aim to:
- Maintain relatively equal population numbers
- Be composed of whole county voting precincts
- Have easily identifiable geographic boundaries
- Retain integrity of neighborhoods or communities of interest
- Be compact and contiguous
- Avoid packing or cracking
- Preserve incumbent-constituency relations
