Public Workshops Scheduled for Mesa City Council Redistricting

July 21, 2021 at 1:18 pm

Every ten years, local governments, including the City of Mesa, use new census data to redraw their City Council district lines to reflect how local populations have changed. Mesa's nonpartisan Redistricting Commission, a five-member panel created by mandate of the City Charter, has scheduled a series of public workshops to get input from our residents:

Thursday, Aug. 12 at 6 p.m.
Webster Recreation Center, 202 N. Sycamore

oSaturday, Aug. 14 at 10 a.m.
Fire Station 218, 845 N. Alma School Road

Tuesday, Aug. 17 at 6 p.m.
Eagles Community Center, 828 E. Broadway Road

Wednesday, Aug. 18 at 12 p.m.
Red Mountain Library, 635 N. Power Road

Wednesday, Aug. 25 at 6 p.m. - Virtual Zoom meeting (link coming soon)

Thursday, Aug. 26 at 6 p.m.
Cadence Community Room, 9760 E. Cadence Parkway

Saturday, Aug. 28 at 10 a.m.
Madison Elementary, 849 S. Sunnyvale

All of the public workshops will have translation services in Spanish.

We are also asking the public to identify their communities using DistrictR, an online public mapping tool at https://districtr.org/tag/mesaaz. This allows you to share how you think city council districts should be drawn to best represent your community. All maps submitted will be carefully reviewed by the Redistricting Commission. The map of Mesa's current council districts is available at www.mesaaz.gov/redistricting.

Mesa residents can submit questions to Redistricting@mesaaz.gov.

The Redistricting Commission's recommended map is expected to be delivered to Mesa City Council on Nov. 15, 2021.
