Committees

Outreach Committee

  • The Commission’s committee on outreach will seek community input and testimony from stakeholders on how new districts should be designed and constituted. The Committee will attempt to attract a diverse group of stakeholders from each Council District for input, and target outreach to communities whose input is lacking. The Committee will engage with Neighborhood Councils, community organizations and local leaders, and use existing and new media platforms, to reach stakeholders. The Committee will also be committed to keeping stakeholders informed of developments and scheduled public hearings, and create a digital database to accept public testimony.

Mapping & Data Committee

  • The Commission’s committee on data and mapping will assess available population and demographic information from the Census Bureau, as well as solicit and assess data from third-party groups.

The Committee will also assess issues of polarization within communities and their effects on the Redistricting process.
