Redistricting DC

Redistricting was a topic of discussion at the September 21 OCTO GIS Steering Committee meeting.   The meeting minutes report the following:
  • Redistricting will affect ward and ANC boundaries.
  • The City Council will have the final say on boundaries.
  • The City Council will begin the ward redistricting process in March 2011; the process will take three months.
  • Each of the eight wards must have the same population.
  • ANC redistricting takes place after new ward boundaries have been approved.

Redistricting will affect nonprofits and the way some services are delivered to District residents.   For this reason, advocates and providers will be well-served to pay attention.
