Broomfield is seeking public input on three options for redistricting ward boundaries.
To view the current ward map, the three new options and provide opinions on future lines, visit Broomfield.org/BFDistricts.
The law requires Broomfield’s wards each have approximately the same number of residents, according to the site, and because of recent growth, the time has come to update boundaries.
When creating the three options, Broomfield continued to meet these charter requirements:
- Contiguous Compact
- Approximately same number of voters
- Cannot exclude a Councilmember from office before the expiration of the term for which they were elected
Other things considered included school district boundaries; keeping neighborhoods together; placing boundaries with major cross streets or natural borders; and future growth.
“As the City and County of Broomfield moves forward with redistricting, districts will not be arranged around term-limited councilmembers,” according to the website. “Councilmembers will serve their final year, but their district may change before the next election.”
