Commission Releases First Draft of District Map for Council
After a series of public working sessions, outreach meetings and an online survey filled out by more than 2,300 residents, the citizen-led Council Residential Districting Commission has released the first draft of a district map for Columbus City Council districts.
The first map released is based on 2010 Census data, while future sets of maps will use 2020 Census data.
Residents can continue to provide feedback via additional public meetings and via an interactive map. The tool allows residents to pin their comments to a location as well as view comments from others.
In the next three months, the commission will release two additional rounds of maps for review and comment. Eventually, the commission will submit three maps to council, which will vote and choose one of the maps by the end of 2021.
The districts will go into effect in the 2023 council election.
