Provo invites residents to redraw boundaries

Provo residents are getting a chance to try their hand at redistricting.

The city recently unveiled a website, redistricting.provo.org, that allows residents to submit their own proposals for Municipal Council and Provo School Board districts.

Five of the council's seven seats are assigned to geographic districts, while all seven school board seats are geographically based.

The redistricting process allows the city to ensure that the population is balanced among the districts after each census.

Like the website used for the Legislature's redistricting, the city's website allows people to move district boundaries to bring the district within the required population limit, and submit the proposals for consideration.

Provo is accepting the school board proposals until Sunday. They will be presented to the school board Feb. 14, with the council reviewing them on Feb. 21. A final vote is set for Feb. 28

The council maps will be accepted until March 12. No date has been set for final approval.

Government • A new website gives citizens the venue to submit proposals.
