As we noted in this weekend’s Gazette article, next to actually voting for the members of the City Council, determining the composition of our City Council districts is the most important part of selecting our representatives.
The Council of Neighbors and Organizations, Citizens Project, Colorado Springs Diversity Forum, Colorado Common Cause, the Black/Latino Coalition, and the League of Women Voters of the Pikes Peak Region are hosting a series of public discussions on the City of Colorado Springs’ City Council redistricting process. There will be four opportunities to share your thoughts on the redistricting process and how it might better serve the citizens of Colorado Springs:
Monday, February 25, 7:30 PM, Westside Community Center, 1628 W Bijou St.
Tuesday, February 26, 7 PM, Stetson Hills Police Station, 4110 Tutt Blvd.
Thursday, February 28, 7 PM, Colorado Springs Fire Station 18, 6830 Hadler View
Saturday, March 2, 10 AM, Deerfield Hills Community Center, 4290 Deerfield Hills Rd.
Each discussion will begin with an overview of the current process, followed by a discussion on how the process might be improved. The results of these discussions will be shared with City Council, City Clerk, City Attorney, and the Mayor. Council will consider modifying the current system at its March and April meetings.
