Every decade, two years after the US Census, Indiana Code requires the Common Council to redraw its districts. The Citizens Redistricting Advisory Commission (CRAC) is an independent, politically balanced body whose purpose is to recommend the new boundaries that divide the city into six council districts. 

 

Registered voters who live in the City of Bloomington will make up the 9-member commission. Members should have voted as a resident in at least one of the last two general elections. (MyBloomington can be used to verify residency.) The Commission will be evenly divided by political affiliation; three democrats, three republicans and three independents. Please note: one member of each political designation should be a full-time student at Indiana University-Bloomington.

 

In pursuit of its objective, the Commission will operate with transparency. Data used to draw maps will be made publicly available, public comment will be gathered and voters will be able to submit their own maps to the Commission online. To reach as large an audience as possible, public meetings will be scheduled at various times and days and take place in at least 3 of the 6 current council districts. 

 

Once its work is complete, the Commission will issue its recommended maps to the Common Council with descriptions of council districts and a report that explains how the recommended districts comply with BMC 2.12.120(e).

 

The commission will meet at least every other month and members will serve without compensation. Because of the time-limited nature of its purpose, the term of the Commissioners is limited to two years from the date of its formation, following a federal decennial Census. 

 

Statutory Authority: Ordinance 20-30
