(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- Commissioner Jose "Pepe" Diaz will be hosting a public meeting regarding redistricting in Miami-Dade County. The meeting will be held on Monday, August 15, 2011 at 6 p.m. at the City of Virginia Gardens City Hall, 6498 NW 38th Terrace.
Following the release of the 2010 Census data, Miami-Dade County is in the process of updating the Commission District boundaries to comply with Federal, State and local requirements. There was a double-digit population growth in eight commission districts with District 9 leading the list at 33.1 percent, District 12 (Commissioner Diaz's district) following at 20.4 percent, and District 8 third at 18.0 percent.
These changes in commission district population will have ramifications on the boundaries of future commission districts. More information on redistricting, as well as a list of public meetings, can be found online at www.miamidade.gov/redistricting.
Please contact Commissioner Diaz's office at 305-599-1200 if you have questions on the August 15 meeting.
