City of Tampa City Council Redistricting

Location of Public Workshops

On this page you will find information concerning the Planning Commission’s redistricting effort for the four, single-member City Council Districts.

The Tampa City Charter, Article VIII, Section 8.03, states the incorporated city shall be redivided by recommendation and with the approval of the Hillsborough County City-County Planning Commission, into seven council districts, three of those districts being identical with the territorial boundaries of the city, and four districts being divisions of the entire city, each containing as nearly as possible as equal population, while maintaining the integrity of precinct boundaries.”  In addition, this project, including all the advertisements and public hearings, must be completed “…no later than April 1…” of 2014.

The Public Hearing was held on February 10 at 7:31 PM.

The Planning Commission recommended and moved for approval Alternative 6.  Here is the adopted resolution: Adopted Resolution
