Austin Redistricting Process – Public Input

Hello Neighbors,

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.

Saturday, Sept 18
Tuesday, Sept 21
Saturday, Sept 25
Tuesday, Sept 28
Saturday, Oct 2

More information on the redistricting process and next steps can be found by visiting the following sites:
