October 3 Redistricting Subcommittee Meetings

Monday, October 3, 2011 – The Florida House’s redistricting subcommittees (House, Senate and Congress) will continue their inspection and discussion of public input received regarding Florida’s new state legislative and congressional district maps.

Monday’s meetings will feature presentations regarding public input from Southwest Florida, and then presentations regarding those complete or near complete maps submitted by Florida residents.  Public input from Southwest Florida includes input given at the public hearings in Tampa, Largo, Sarasota, Naples, Lehigh Acres and Clewiston.  Additionally, written testimony and maps provided by Southwest Florida residents will also be reviewed.

For a preview of the October 3 presentations, see the new report entitled “Public Input Summary for Southwest Florida” at www.floridaredistricting.org under “Legislative Headlines.”  Similar regional reports, which cover the other regions of the State, were presented during the September 19 redistricting subcommittee meetings and can be also be found at www.floridaredistricting.org.

Location Change for the Tampa Redistricting Hearing

The location for the August 29 Florida redistricting meeting in Tampa has changed to:

  • Jefferson High School Auditorium
  • 4401 Cypress Street
  • Tampa, Florida 33607

Jefferson High School has plenty of free parking, close proximity to a bus stop, and more seating than the original downtown location.  We think it will be much more convenient for the public.

Persons who pre-registered (RSVP) to attend/speak at the Tampa meeting will be receiving and email or letter that confirms the change of address.
