During a media conference on Tuesday, November 13th, City Clerk Sarah Johnson unveiled the final City Council district map for the April 2013 Municipal Election. Voters approved a move from four City Council districts to six with the implementation of the new form of government in 2011. The City Charter and Code require that the City Clerk redistrict City Council districts every four years. Redistricting is required to ensure that districts are contiguous and equal in population.
The City Clerk has followed the redistricting process pursuant to section 2-10(b) of the Charter and Sections 5.1.401, 5.1.402 and 5.1.403 of the City Code. City Code Sections 5.1.401, 5.1.402 and 5.1.403 succinctly outline the process for the City Clerk to follow. City Council passed these Code Sections in 2001 and created a process that deliberately does not include Council involvement in the redistricting.
