“We want you…” to testify in NYC Districting – Julie Menin


NYC Districting is here, and District 5 City Council Member Julie Menin wants you to be a part of it. The NYC Districting Commission has just started the process of redrawing the 51 New York City Council districts, and your input matters. Testifying is an important way to have your voice heard in the process, so she encourages you to do so.

“The NYC Districting Commission has just started the process of redrawing the 51 New York City Council districts, and we want you to testify,” Menin’s Communications Director Anna Correa said yesterday. 

Current NYC Council District 5

Thursday, May 26th is the first Public Hearing for the New York City Council hosted by the NYC Districting Commission starting at 3 pm at 1 Pace Plaza, New York, NY 10007. A copy of the public notice for the hearing, including instructions for how to submit written and verbal testimony, is available on the Commission’s website here.

“The City Charter requires that New Yorkers provide input in this process and community input is integral,” Correa emphasized. “Feel free to share this message with other community members/organizations in the district.”

Also attached is the poster from the NYC Districting Commission for the event, as well as the current map of our district. If you would like to see the map on the website to see where our district ends and zoom in on the zone, check here.

Your participation matters because NYC Districting happens once a decade. The last NYC Districting process was in 2012 when our current council districts were drawn. This time around, the NYC Districting Commission is required to take into account changes in population, geography and community interests when drawing the new district lines.
