Council Residential Districting Commission Releases Sample Columbus District Map

District-drawing process to conclude by end of 2021, with updated maps to come


[COLUMBUS, OH]  Today, September 1, 2021, the Council Residential Districting Commission (CRDC) released its first draft of a district map for Columbus City Council districts. 

Thus far, the CRDC has held a series of eight public outreach meetings, six public working sessions and conducted an online survey that garnered thousands of results. All of the feedback gathered at these meetings and in the survey helped to inform the process to draw this map. The map draft released today is based on 2010 Census data, meant to demonstrate the CRDC’s utilization of community feedback in the process. All future maps will use 2020 Census data, which will be available for use in the next few weeks.

"We are so excited to share our work with the public," said Commission Chair Malik Moore. "I am grateful to have done a small part of the work with an amazing team of people. I will feel blessed to witness the work we started continue to grow and I believe one day we will see every voice lifted up. In a City as diverse as Columbus, the sky's the limit."

“After hearing from residents in every corner of the City, as well as reviewing the survey results that more than 2,000 residents filled out, I am excited to put out our first map for public feedback," said Commission member Monica Cerrezuela. "These initial comments from the public will be instrumental in helping us create additional maps as we dive into the 2020 Census data and how we account for Columbus' 15% increase in population over the last decade.”

hotcard"This process has been open and transparent, but the work isn't done," said Councilmember Emmanuel V. Remy. "I'm eager to advocate that residents across Columbus participate and engage with this exciting process as we move along -- attend a working session or send the Commission an email. The future of our City will be determined by these maps by the end of the year, and public feedback couldn’t be more important."

“As the citizen-led Commission changes the future of the City’s legislature, it is critical to show its work along the way,” said Council President Shannon G. Hardin. “While this first map is just a draft, it is important to get resident feedback to inform the future drafts.”

The CRDC will continue open, public meetings. Residents are encouraged to follow Council's social media channels and further emails for information on future events and map releases as they take place. The main places to watch will be on Facebook Live or on the City of Columbus' YouTube channel, where you can watch all past public meetings.

Council will approve one of three final draft maps produced by the CRDC by the end of 2021, and the districts will be in place for the 2023 Columbus City Council election cycle.
