City Council Redistricting

The Hillsborough County City-County Planning Commission invites public comment on a plan for single-member election districts for Tampa City Council 2007 elections. They are reviewed every four years to allow for changes in population. The purpose of the public hearing is for the Planning Commission to recommend and approve city election districts to the Supervisor of Elections following receipt of public input. The public hearings will be held at 4 locations. The closest to Seminole Heights is the College Hill workshop on 3/20/06 at 7PM.

This is the time to seek to have all of Seminole Heights placed in one City Council district, so that we have better representation in City Council. District 6 is the best choice.

If you can't make it email them or call 272-5940
