 Event Date(s):
Saturday, October 13, 2012 spacer*spacer*spacer*

 City Agency:City Clerk
 Event Type:Public Hearing
 Details:

The City of Colorado Springs City Clerk, Sarah Johnson, will host a public hearing on the preliminary redistricting plan at the Hillside Community Center (925 South Institute) on Saturday, October 13 from 9 a.m. to noon. 

The City of Colorado Springs City Charter and City Code require that the City Clerk redistrict City Council districts every four years. 

Following is the timeline for the 2012 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.  Council themselves passed these Code Sections in 2001 and created a process that deliberately does not include Council involvement in the redistricting.
