The City has continued to increase in geographic size and population since the 2010 Census results were used for the 2012 redistricting. The 2020 Census shows a total City population of 397,532, an increase of 15,164 from 382,368 in 2010. The target population to balance every district evenly, therefore, would be one-sixth of the total, or 66,255. In order for the five percent deviation standard to be met, the population of each district must fall within the range of 60,542 to 69,568.
The table below indicates the degree to which the current districts comply with the Charter Ordinance standard. Only District IV falls within the target range set by the ordinance. The districts range from a low of 95 percent of the target in District III to a high of 107 percent in District II.

The Commission of Electors will propose revisions to current district boundaries that provide an appropriate population balance among districts and that take into account the requirements of the Charter Ordinance. It may also consider other factors such as natural boundaries, the boundaries of local neighborhood associations, the likely magnitude and direction of future growth over the next ten years, and the manner in which the core area and Central Business District should be represented.
