Voice Your Opinion at the NYC Districting Commission’s Public Hearings

It’s that time again. Every ten years, the NYC Districting Commission meets to redraw the New York City Council’s district lines in order to account for shifts in the population based on the last Census. This process has officially begun this summer. Don’t be left out of the conversation!

The NYC Districting Commission will be holding hearings this month so that the public can give its input as the Commission enters the initial phases of drafting a new districting plan. If you would like to register for speaking time at one of these hearings or submit written testimony in advance, please sign up online at http://www.nyc.gov/districting. Those speaking will be allotted up to three minutes to provide their testimony.

You can also keep up with the latest on the process by visiting the Districting Commission’s website or following the Commission on Twitter or Facebook.  

Below are the two public hearings for our Manhattan and Bronx constituents:

MANHATTAN – Thursday, August 16th – 5PM-9PM
