Orange County’s Advisory Committee for Redistricting to Meet
WHAT: The Advisory Committee for Redistricting will meet on Monday, October 18, 2021, to discuss potential commission district boundary adjustments for Orange County. This is the fifth of eleven committee meetings scheduled between September and mid-December.
WHEN: Monday, October 18, 2021 – 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: South Econ Recreation Center – 3800 S Econlockhatchee Tr, Orlando, FL 32829
WHY: Federal law, the Florida Constitution, and the Orange County Charter mandate that the County reconsiders its political boundaries every ten years based upon updated population data. As the latest census was completed by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2020, Orange County must complete its decennial redistricting process by March 2022.
MEETINGS: Future meeting dates, times and locations can be found on the county’s redistricting page at www.ocfl.net/Redistricting. Previously held meetings can be viewed on Orange TV’s YouTube Channel, located at https://www.youtube.com/user/orangetvfl/videos.
MORE INFO: The goal of redistricting is to readjust the population between commission districts so that no Orange County Commissioner is representing substantially more individual residents than the other commissioners. Redistricting is accomplished by adjusting the boundaries of the County’s six commission districts to account for population growth.
