Austin Redistricting Public Forum
September 25 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
~En Espanol abajo~
The Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (ICRC) for the City of Austin will hold a Public Forum to receive public comment on preliminary district maps.
Come hear about the ICRC mandate, how we executed this mandate, and give us feedback on the initial maps.
We look forward to seeing you there!
All are welcome, and light refreshments will be served.
All citizens of Austin and the public are invited to attend the first of five public meetings to provide public comment and feedback on the preliminary City Council district map and to hear from the ICRC about the process used for creating the new boundaries.
After hearing from residents and reviewing public testimony from the five forums, the next step for commissioners and the mapping specialist will be to discuss potential revisions, incorporate those revisions and vote on a proposed final map in October. The ICRC will present a draft of the final map at three more public forums to receive input. Korbel and the commissioners will redraw the final map with public testimony in the final week of October, then vote on the map and present it to the Austin city council November 1.
To submit feedback directly to the commission about redistricting please email: icrc.commissioners@
austintexas.gov or write to: Housing and Planning Department, Attn: ICRC, P.O. Box 1088, Austin, Texas 78767.
