The final map will shape the City Council for the next decade – residents have three maps to weigh in on:– Map X Version 2 creates two new districts north of Loop 820.– Map X Version 3 creates a second majority Hispanic district.– Map X Version 4 also creates a majority Hispanic district – and it’s a larger majority than Version 3.

The council prioritized Version 3 at a March 1 meeting. Since then, the redistricting page on the city’s website was updated to include Version 2 and Version 4 for public view. At the final public comment meeting, residents will have the opportunity to advocate for the map of their choice.
