Henrico sets public hearings for redistricting

The Henrico County Board of Supervisors will hold public hearings on the county’s 2011 magisterial district reapportionment plan at its regularly scheduled meetings at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 12 and Tuesday, April 26 in the Government Center Board Room, 4301 E. Parham Road.

At the April 12 public hearing, the board will consider the draft redistricting plan that adjusts the county’s magisterial district boundaries and makes related changes to precincts and polling places. The board will consider ordinances to adopt the redistricting plan and changes to precincts and polling places at the April 26 public hearing. Once adopted, the plan will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice for preclearance under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Federal and state law requires localities to reapportion the representation in the governing body among the magisterial districts every 10 years. The 2010 U.S. Census counted 306,935 residents in Henrico, with Three Chopt District comprising the largest population at 72,035; the ideal population per district would be 61,387 residents. The draft plan proposes district boundaries that shift a total of 8,808 residents from Three Chopt to the Tuckahoe and Brookland districts, while boundaries for the Fairfield and Varina districts would remain unchanged. The proposed plan would affect eight voting precincts of 93 countywide.

The draft plan, ordinances, maps and other information are available online at http://www.henricoredistricting.com and in the Planning Department and County Manager’s Office at the Henrico Government Center, 4301 E. Parham Road. Comments and questions may be submitted by email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or by calling 501-4427.
