The Council Residential Districting Commission will postpone their upcoming North Side Regional Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, May 19th due to overlapping meeting schedules. The Council Residential Districting Commission is drawing the maps that will create nine Council districts in the City of Columbus, and we need your help to get it right. In addition to the weekly neighborhood virtual meetings occurring right now, you have an option to take the CRDC survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/Columbusdistricts. Visit columbus.gov/districtingcommission for more info.
The survey asks users for their insights in neighborhood representation in Columbus and how they want to see the CRDC address the new residential Council districts. The information will inform the strategy in the drawing of the maps to take place later this year.
“As our community continues to reimagine public safety and discuss the needs of our neighbors, it is important that we don’t make people choose between two important meetings. Postponing this week’s CRDC meeting just makes sense,” said Malik Moore, Chair of the Council Residential Districting Commission. “We encourage residents to attend Mayor Ginther’s Virtual Town Hall on Wednesday, May 19th at 6:00p to hear from the four finalists for Columbus Chief of Police.”
The next CRDC meeting will occur on Wednesday, May 26th from 5:30-7:30p focusing on the East Side Region of the City. Look for future Columbus City Council advisories for more information.
