Census 2000 Redistricting
Ward Three Councilmember Kathy Patterson and At-Large Councilmember Phil Mendelson gave a presentation on the results of Census 2000. The District of Columbia has a population of 572,069. Each of the Eight Wards of DC needs to contain an equal number of residents. This requires each Ward to have a population of 71,500 with a margin of +/- 5%. Ward Three has a population of 79,566 and will have to move boundary lines in order to come into compliance. Council hearings will be held April 5 and April 7, 2001. Ward Boundary recommendations are due by April 26, 2001 and a report is to be issued on May 15, 2001.
The Ward redistricting will also affect the ANC Boundaries. Each ANC is to contain approximately 2000 residents. As ANC 3B is located on the boarder of Ward Three and Ward Two, it is possible that the Ward redistricting will affect all or part of ANC3B. Under DC Municipal Regulations Title 1, section 1308 - 1331, the redistricting is to take into consideration the following concerns: Census tracts shall not be divided; Neighborhood Boundaries shall be kept compact and intact; the voting rights of minorities shall not be diluted.
There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 9:30 p.m.
