The committee chosen to revise Niagara County Legislature district boundaries mirrored the 1.75% dip in county inhabitants within the 2020 census by leaving the borders of 10 of the 15 districts unchanged.
Stephen F. Brady, who chaired the redistricting panel, mentioned it unanimously opted to make as few strikes as doable.
Public hearings might be held at 6 p.m. Oct. 12 in Niagara Falls Metropolis Corridor and 6 p.m. Oct. 13 within the County Courthouse in Lockport.
Within the Falls, the 4th District’s inhabitants shrank by 3.2%, whereas the sixth District grew by 4.2%, so 497 residents have been moved from the sixth to the 4th.
The City of Lockport’s twelfth District grew by 8.4%, so 745 residents might be shifted to both the thirteenth District or the fifteenth District.
If public response triggers no adjustments in the proposal, Brady mentioned will probably be submitted to the County Legislature, which can maintain its personal listening to in November earlier than voting. The brand new map might be used within the 2023 election.
