Overview:

The City of Lockhart consists of four single-member districts, and three at-large positions (which includes the Mayor) for election purposes. Based on the 2020 U.S. Census results, the city is required to redistrict this year to be in compliance with the federal Voting Rights Act.  The City appointed Bickerstaff, Heath, Delgado, & Acosta, LLP to provide guidance on how city district lines should be redrawn.

 

In the February 8 Special Council Meeting held for the first map drawing session, Councilmembers accepted Bickerstaff, Heath, Delgado and Acosta, LLP’s proposed redistricting plan, which only affects District 2, the most populated district in Lockhart, and District 3, the least populated district. The plan expands District 3 to include residents living in the area bordered by Monte Vista Dr., Stueve Ln. and N. Medina Ln., reducing the population deviation to 8.9%, under the maximum 10% between the most populated and least populated city districts as required by the U.S. Constitution and court decisions. Upon the plan’s acceptance, the February 22nd and March 8th drawing sessions have been cancelled. 

 

Redistricting will be back on the City Council agenda May 17th. Two public hearings have been held, March 15th and April 5th Council meetings, respectively, on the proposed redistricting lines. 

 

Here's the City's Special Redistricting Counsel's proposed redistricting plan below:
