The Austin Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission is 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 enables full public consideration and comment. A series of public meetings, including special Public Input Meetings, will be held throughout the months of August through November.
The Commission will work to ensure that the districts are geographically contiguous and compact, minimize the impact on local neighborhoods or communities of interest, use existing election precinct boundaries, and have 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 is committed to informing and hearing from the public throughout this historic process.
