Austin residents will redraw the city council district boundaries.

Background

Austin has a process for residents to redraw the boundaries of the council districts every ten years. The boundaries of the council districts greatly impact Austin’s government and will shape how residents are represented for the next decade.

Get involved

The 14 member Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (ICRC) redrew the 10 City Council Districts based on 2020 Census data and public input. Seventeen public forums were held in the ten City Council Districts, four Travis County Precincts as well as online on Zoom from July 2021 - October 2021 to gather the first round of public input. Three more public forums were held in October 2021 to display the first map drafts and gather a second round of public input.
