Redistricting Discussions Resume in Some Communities

Some Louisville Metro council members are to beginning show drafts of new district boundaries this week.When conversation stalled earlier this month in the ad hoc Committee on Redistricting it was unclear when the public would see drafts of their new districts. Maps were expected to be released last month, but council members were delayed by former-Councilwoman Judy Green’s trial, said Councilman Ken Fleming, R-7.With the trial over, certain council members are taking drafts of their new proposed districts to public hearings in their communities. The new maps should reflect the growing east-end population and new census data.All districts should expect some changes, but the committee tries to maintain the integrity of each district when possible, said Councilman Rick Blackwell, D-12, chair of the redistricting committee. Redistricting is required every 10 years according to state statute. Metro Council legally has until the end of the year to redraw the lines.The last scheduled committee meeting is Monday. The public is encouraged to show up and comment for the first 15 minutes.
