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.
