In 2010, voters approved a ballot question giving authority for redistricting to the Charter Commission. The Charter Commission selects an advisory group of up to nine eligible voters in the City. This group, the Redistricting Advisory Group, advises the Charter Commission about redistricting.
They work together to:
- Prepare new ward and park district maps
- Hold and attend public meetings
- Review all written public comments
The Charter Commission then has the final authority to approve new boundaries.
