Virtual Meetings Scheduled on October 14 and 23 for Community Input
(October 13, 2021 – Memphis, TN) The Shelby County Commission is launching a new website to share with Shelby County residents proposed redistricting maps for consideration. The website is www.myshelbytndistricts.com and is available now for residents to review and comment on the maps and participate in virtual meetings to learn more.
Every decade following the U.S. Census, Shelby County updates its maps for County Commission and School Board districts. The Shelby County Commission formed an ad hoc committee to work on this critical task. Shelby County Commissioner Van Turner, Jr. chairs this committee. “We are inviting Shelby County residents to review the website and attend the virtual community meetings on October 14 and 23. Your input is critical to the success of this redistricting process.”
The new boundaries must be roughly equal in populations and observe established redistricting guidelines that conform to federal, state, and local directives.
Visit the website to register for the virtual meetings or the Facebook page My Shelby TN Districts. On the website, residents can sign-up to receive regular updates on the process. The redistricting process will conclude in November of this year. For more information, you can contact the Shelby County Commission at 901.222.1000.
