City Clerk media briefing on final redistricting TODAY, 11/13
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
City of Colorado Springs City Clerk Sarah Johnson will release the final City Council redistricting map on Tuesday, November 13 at 11 a.m. The media briefing will take place in the City Administration Building (30 S. Nevada Ave.) Suite 102.
The City of Colorado Springs City Charter and City 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.
