REDISTRICTING ADVISORY COMMITTEE SEEKING PUBLIC INPUT TO REDISTRICT
CITY WARD BOUNDARIES
Every four years the boundaries of the six wards of the City are reviewed to determine whether adjustments are necessary to equalize the population in each ward. The Mayor and Council have established a citizens committee to assist with this effort.
The Redistricting Advisory Committee encourages public participation in
the redistricting process and wants to hear from you. A public hearing
will be held to gather information from the public regarding ward
redistricting. The preliminary redistricting plans will be on display
at the public hearing and are available for public inspection during
normal business hours at the City of Tucson, City Clerk’s Office, City
Hall, 255 West Alameda, 9th floor. Additionally, the plans are
available on the City Clerk Elections web page:
