As our city grows and changes, residents’ representation in government begins to get out of balance. Redistricting aims to distribute the population of our city evenly among our six commission districts. The even distribution ensures that every Orlandoan is represented fairly by their City Council members.
To do this, the City Charter requires us to initiate a redistricting process using the latest U.S. Census data (which occurs about every ten years).
Public participation is important for fair and accurate representation. It can help us better understand how to avoid drawing district boundaries that unfairly divide communities. We achieve participation through a Citizen Redistricting Advisory Board, as well as input from residents. We will host public meetings and open houses, provide access to create redistricting maps and offer opportunities to tell us about your community.
