(July 26, 2011) - Oklahoma City’s eight ward boundaries are being redrawn. The changes are a result of redistricting, which is required every decade following the census to rebalance the population in each ward.
Residents are invited to review and provide input on the proposed ward map during a public meeting at 6 p.m. on August 9 in the City Council Chamber on the third floor of City Hall, 200 N Walker.
“We worked hard to keep individual neighborhoods in the same ward and make as few changes as possible,” said redistricting coordinator Jane Abraham. “Council members will take the public’s input into consideration before approving the final plan.”
The new boundaries are slated for final hearing on August 30 and are expected to take effect September 30.
Redistricting is a requirement of both federal law and the City Charter.
