TO ESTABLISH THE CITIZENS' REDISTRICTING ADVISORY COMMISSION (To Establish an Independent Redistricting Commission)

This ordinance is authored by Councilmember Volan and amends Title 2 of the Bloomington Municipal Code (Administration and Personnel) to create a nine-member Citizens' Redistricting Advisory Commission. This Commission would have a two-year mandate to make recommendations to the Common Council on how to divide the city into six councilmanic districts following a federal decennial Census. Note: At the December 16 Regular Session, the Council adopted five amendments to the ordinance as follows: - Am O 1 - stated that the three at-large councilmembers, rather than an executive committee of the Council, shall help conduct the commission's selection process; - Am 02 - revised the membership qualifications such that the voting record requirements are the same for all members (student or non-student); - Am 03 - stated that the ranking (longest-serving) at-large councilmember, rather than the City Clerk, shall determine and administer the method of random selection; - Am 04 - corrected a misspelled word in the tenth Whereas clause; and - Am 05 - removed reference to specific months during which the commission would otherwise have to meet.
