It is now time for City of Austin residents to redraw City Council district boundaries.
As you may know, Austin has 10 city council members and a mayor. The mayor is elected by residents citywide and each council member is elected by residents of a geographic district within the city. Austin has a process for residents to redraw the boundaries of the council districts every ten years.
OWANA wanted to let you know how you can participate in this process. A preliminary map has been adopted, and now is the time for residents to comment on that map. You can view a copy of the map here. Public forums will be held on the following dates. Full details, including locations, times, etc for these forums can be found here.
