Redistricting Commission’s Approved Final Plan to Mayor & City Council
The Redistricting Commission has worked diligently over the past eight months to develop a districting plan in a timely manner. The recommended districting plan, COD-041-B-FINAL, was adopted by the Redistricting Commission by a 9-6 vote and approved to send to the mayor, as required by the City Charter, by a vote of 10 to 5 on Tuesday, May 10, 2022.
Plans were developed to ensure there was no discrimination on the basis of race, color, or membership in a language minority group, and the Commission was mindful to not dilute the voting strength of racial, ethnic, and language minorities that could deprive minority voters of an equal opportunity to elect a candidate of their choice.
The final districting plan also maintains communities of interest, and where possible, avoids splitting neighborhoods. The districts are geographically contiguous with compactness scores similar to the existing districting plan.

A Message from the Chairman
How do you want to be represented for the next 10 years?
The 2021 City Council Redistricting Plan is the culmination of the redistricting process mandated by the Dallas City Charter. The Charter requires the creation of a Redistricting Commission every 10 years when the Census figures are released. The Redistricting Commission, appointed by the City Council, will recommend a districting plan based on population changes but we need your input.
