The City of Madison has held public meetings to review a proposed redistricting plan to ensure equal distribution between City Council districts.  The City has provided presentations from the public meetings to provide more information on the process.

Every 10 years jurisdictions with City Council districts evaluate whether a change to their district boundaries (redistricting) is needed based on the most recent U.S. Census population data. At a public meeting held on September 27, 2021, the City’s consultants presented data showing that redistricting is warranted. The City follows 5 steps in reviewing and implementing redistricting; currently, the City is moving to step 4, reviewing the developed plan. Residents are invited and encouraged to participate in the following public meetings.
