General Assembly Delineates New Commissioner Districts

(July 29, 2011) Yesterday the North Carolina General Assembly passed House Bill 719, which establishes new districts for the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners, bypassing the County Commission, which had established a process for delineating the districts.

Redistricting was necessary to make the population of each district equitable based on population shifts since 2000 as shown in 2010 census results.

As expected, Steele Creek is no longer entirely within District 2. Two Steele Creek precincts along the South Carolina border (122 and 229) were transferred from District 2 to District 6. Some proposals had more Steele Creek precincts being shifted, so the impact on Steele Creek is not as much as it could have been.

The maps below show the new districts. Click on either map to see a larger, pdf version.
