The Austin Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission was charged with drawing ten new single-member City Council district boundaries in compliance with federal and state requirements through an open and transparent process that enabled full public consideration and comment. A series of public meetings, including special Public Input Meetings, were held throughout the months of August 2013 through November 2013.
The Commission worked to ensure that the districts were geographically contiguous and compact, minimizing the impact on local neighborhoods or communities of interest, used existing election precinct boundaries, and had geographically identifiable boundaries.
Comprised of fourteen diverse citizen volunteers from throughout Austin, selected through a transparent and independent application process, Austin Redistricting’s Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission was committed to informing and hearing from the public throughout this historic process.
On November 18, 2013, the Commission voted unanimously to approve a final map.
