The City of Houston Charter requires that the Houston City Council expand to eleven single-member districts at such point that census data demonstrates that the City’s population exceeds 2.1 million residents. With the much anticipated release of the 2010 U.S. Census, the City will begin the process of redistricting in order to add those districts.
The City is interested in hearing from you and your neighborhood regarding your suggestions for the configuration of the new council districts. Attend any Town Hall meeting and tell us what you think. Visit the Houston City Council’s website to find the closest meeting to where you live or work and for more information.
