Colorado Independent Congressional Redistricting Commission Adds Four Public Hearings to its Roadshow Schedule

The Colorado Independent Congressional Redistricting Commission announced four additional hearings to its roadshow schedule. The addition of the four hearings, all scheduled in Congressional Districts 5 and 6, ensures the Congressional Commission will hold at least three hearings in each of the seven current congressional districts by Aug. 11, 2021. This provides nonpartisan legislative staff time to receive public comments, redraw the maps using preliminary data, and have the drafts approved by Sept. 1, the current deadline for draft approval of the redistricting plans as outlined in the Colorado Constitution. 

These hearings will provide Colorado residents the opportunity to testify about their communities and communicate directly with the Colorado Independent Congressional Redistricting Commissions. Coloradans have the opportunity to provide testimony in person and remotely at each hearing. The Colorado Independent Legislative Redistricting Commission will not convene at the newly scheduled hearings. Its deadline to have drafts approved is Sept. 15.
