The city of San Antonio Redistricting Advisory Committee will have its next public session at 2 p.m. May 31 at the Municipal Plaza “B” Room, 114 W. Commerce St.
The committee has been gathering community input on a draft plan for resetting City Council boundaries, a process driven by the 2020 U.S. census. The draft plan can be found online and at six public libraries, including Igo Library, 13330 Kyle Seale Parkway. According to the city, the draft redistricting plan was developed by 23 advisory committee members over nine advisory committee meetings, including four map drawing sessions. The new map will be designed to balance San Antonio’s population of 1.4 million across the 10 council districts.
City officials said in April that the largest movement is likely going to take place between the boundaries of council districts 1, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
The boundaries of 2, 4, and 10 are likewise impacted, and District 3’s boundaries remain the same as they are currently, the city said.
People unable to personally attend the May 31 committee meeting may call 311 and receive directions to get more information about the local redistricting process.
The council is expected to review and approve a redistricting plan this summer.
