Peoria Plans More Public Meetings on Redistricting

Residents Will Have Opportunity to View, Comment on Final Three Options


PEORIA, Ariz. (June 8, 2011) – The city will hold three more public hearings on redistricting now that the City Council has narrowed the options to three concept maps.

The final three maps are Options 1, 2 and 8 – and are available for viewing online at www.peoriaaz.gov/redistricting.

The 2010 Census pegged Peoria’s population at about 145,000, up from about 108,000 in 2000. Most of the population growth was in the north. After crunching the numbers, experts concluded that each district should have 25,678 people. Yet after a decade of growth, the Mesquite District comprising most of northern Peoria has double that amount, while the remaining districts range from almost 18,000 people to about 22,000 people.

This will mean substantial changes in Peoria’s six City Council districts, which need to be roughly equal in population and demographics so that residents are represented equally at City Hall.

Members of the public will be able to view and comment on the final three concept maps at the following times and locations:

  • Tuesday, June 14, 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Lakeview Room at Rio Vista Recreation Center, 8866 W. Thunderbird Road in Rio Vista Community Park.

  • Tuesday, June 14, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the Main Conference Room at the Peoria Community Center, 8335 W. Jefferson St. in Oldtown.

  • Wednesday, June 15, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the Community Room at Sunrise Mountain Library, 21109 N. 98th Ave. off Lake Pleasant Parkway.

The City Council is expected to choose its preferred concept map at a Special Meeting and Study Session on Tuesday, June 21, at 5 p.m. in the City Council Chamber. That map will be finalized and brought up for a vote at the first City Council meeting in July. Pending approval by the federal Justice Department, that plan will set the district boundaries for the 2012 elections.

City Council sessions are open to the public and, as always, will be telecast on Cox channel 11 and at www.peoriaaz.gov/PeoriaTV.
