Future Of Austin's Political Geography Almost Set

Updated: Monday, November 11 2013, 12:04 PM CST

The future of Austin's political geography is almost set.

Only two more chances for public input on the proposed final plan for all new city council districts remain.

The Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission released its suggested map late last week. It divides the city into ten separate districts with roughly the same population. Voters approved the switch last year from seven at-large council seats, including the mayor, to ten seats based on geographic representation and one at-large mayor, a plan known as 10-1.

The commission has four more meetings on its schedule, two of which are slated for public input. The first is on Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. at The Lodge on 700 Dawson Road. The second is at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Millennium Center on 1156 Hargrave Street.

The commission is set to meet again to conduct general business next Monday and will take a final vote on the map on Wednesday. After that, the map will head to City Council for a final vote.
