City of Phoenix Redistricting Information June 15, 2012
Information on Phoenix's Redistricting Process
The United States Constitution (Article 1, Section 2) requires a count of residents in each state be taken every 10 years (known as the census) to determine the amount of representation each state receives in the U.S. Congress as well as direct taxes. The state of Arizona and the city of Phoenix also require that representation and district boundaries be adjusted every 10 years, according to population size – referred to as “redistricting”. During the redistricting process, the city of Phoenix uses current census information to adjust council area boundaries so that each has approximately an equal population size. The city of Phoenix is divided into eight council districts, each represented by a council member.
For your interest and participation in the City's redistricting effort. Please look at the links provided herein to see what is proposed and the process moving forward.
The recommended redistricting plan has been prepared and the map with the statistical analysis is available on the redistricting Website at phoenix.gov/redistricting. The City Council will be considering this plan at the June 19, 2012 Policy Session. This meeting starts at 2:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 200 W. Jefferson Street. The consultant's report will be included in the Council Packet for this meeting, which will be available on Thursday, June 14 and will be posted on the redistricting website by Friday morning, June 15.

From the look of the map all the Historic districts will be in District 4, (we are currently in District 7). It appears that the lower section of the Greater Coronado Neighborhood, south of Brill Street will end up in District 8, (makes no sense to me not to ust the I-10 rather than Brill....putting 2 streets in a different district.
