CADDO COMMISSION TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETINGS ON REDISTRICTING PROCESS
The Caddo Parish Commission is hosting a series of public meetings aimed at educating citizens on the redistricting process in Caddo Parish.
Every 10 years after the release of the U.S. Census, cities, parishes, school boards, and states redraw the lines for election districts to keep population equal on their respective bodies based on federal and state Law. To establish a fair and impartial process, the Parish Commission contracted with Data Center, LLC to review and develop a model redistricting map for public input and Parish Commission consideration and approval.
Throughout the development and review process of the maps, public meetings will provide an opportunity for community members to play a role in the process, learn more about the proposed maps, and hear more about the work involved in redistricting.
“We encourage all citizens to take advantage of the public meeting opportunities regarding redistricting,” said Caddo Commission President John Atkins. “The community’s voice is essential to the process, and we invite our citizens to come learn and ask questions,” said Atkins.
Public meetings are scheduled for Wednesday, July 27 and Thursday, July 28. All meetings will be held at 5:30pm in the Government Chambers of Government Plaza (505 Travis Street, Shreveport).
