The New York City Districting Commission is sifting through more than 8,300 testimonials it received from diverse New Yorkers: in person and via zoom during 24 and half hours of hybrid public hearings in each of the five boroughs and one fully-virtual session; sent by mail; and online.
The City Charter requires the City Council and the mayor to appoint an independent Districting Commission every 10 years, following the decennial census. The process ensures council districts continue to reflect population and demographic changes. After the commission is constituted, commission members and their staff will begin meeting to review all relevant laws, regulations, and the most recent census data. After a series of public hearings and meetings, the commission will develop a final plan, which must be submitted to the City Council by the end of the year.
