SUBJECT/PROPOSAL/REQUEST: Adoption of an Ordinance to revise local magisterial district and precinct boundaries

ITEM TYPE: Regular Action Item

STAFF CONTACT(S): Richardson, Walker, Kamptner, Herrick, Bessette, Washburne

PRESENTER (S): Greg Kamptner


REVIEWED BY: Jeffrey B. Richardson

BACKGROUND: Federal and state law require that Virginia localities adjust their magisterial districts and voting precinct boundaries every 10 years in order to provide for relatively equivalent population distribution among magisterial districts and to eliminate or minimize to the greatest extent possible the existence of split voting precincts. Virginia Code ?24.2-129(B) requires that, as a part of the local redistricting process, the local governing body provide notice to the general public, an opportunity for public comment regarding proposed redistricting plans, and conduct a public hearing regarding the same.

Having adopted a redistricting timeline in accordance with Virginia Code ?24.2-129(B), the Board publicly posted 3 proposed alternative redistricting plans (Map Option 1, Map Option 2, and Map Option 3) and launched the public comment period on February 2, and held a public hearing on the matter on March 2. At the conclusion of the March 2 Public Hearing, the Board unanimously endorsed Map Option 1 as the County's local decennial redistricting plan, and, in accordance with the previously adopted redistricting schedule, set the date for final vote on adoption of that plan for March 23. At the Board's March 16 meeting, the Board asked to bring back Map Options 2 and 3 for discussion and consideration.

STRATEGIC PLAN: Mission - To enhance the well-being and quality of life for all community members through the provision of the of the highest level of public service consistent with the prudent use of public funds.
