.In a nutshell
Responding to requests, opinions and information gathered at the public hearings, the Redistricting Committee has morphed the plan formerly known as J
into a new Map L
The new map refines Map J in the following areas:
- Changes the Second District boundary to encompass Snyderville Basin (just over 7000 people), so they can vote with their neighbors in Park City. Several people at the public hearing in Park City requested this.
- Makes Morgan County (about 7000 people) part of the Third District.
- Includes the City of Eureka in the Third District.
- Puts North Salt Lake in the Second District but keeps Bountiful in the First.
- Adjusts the lines in South Salt Lake County in such a way that the population of the four congressional districts are in exact balance.
Each congressional district will have an equal population of 558,292, with the exception of District One, which will have a population of 558,293.
The Redistricting Committee approved this map 10-1.Next steps:
We anticipate being called into a Special Session on Monday, December 4. Then it’s up to Congress.
