The City Council is asking for your help planning our City’s change to by-district Council elections. The City of Richmond, like over 60 cities and 150 school districts across the state, is making a change in how voters elect the City Council.

Beginning in 2020, City Council members will be elected district by district, instead of the current at-large citywide elections in which all voters have the ability to vote for all City Council seats.

We need your help to make this change!

The primary goal when drawing Council election districts is to draw lines that keep neighborhoods together. So the Council wants to know: what do you consider the boundaries of your neighborhood?

The City of Richmond will hold two Community Workshops starting at 7:00 p.m. on December 5, 2019, at the Hilltop Community Church (Activity Room, 3118 Shane Drive, Richmond) and December 10, 2019, at the Booker T. Anderson Community Center (960 S 47th Street, Richmond) to receive input from the community regarding communities of interest and draft maps submitted for review. These workshops are in addition to the public hearings scheduled as part of the City Council meetings.  More information under the "Schedule" tab above.  

More information will be posted to this page as the process moves forward.
