North Hempstead’s Nonpartisan Temporary Redistricting Commission Unanimously Approves Final Report Including 4 Proposed Revisions to Current Council District Boundaries
North Hempstead, NY – The Town of North Hempstead’s Nonpartisan Temporary Redistricting Commission unanimously approved the Final Report, 7-0, which included four proposed revisions to the existing council districts as part of the redistricting process.
The Commission held three public hearings at North Hempstead Town Hall, Clinton G. Martin Park, and the ‘Yes We Can’ Community Center, and they accepted online comments on the Town website. Following federal and state law, North Hempstead Town Code, as well as public comments, received in person and online, the Commission proposed four options to revise the current Council District boundaries to the North Hempstead Town Board.
According to the 2020 Federal Census, the Town of North Hempstead’s population increased by 5% to 237,639. Based on the Federal Census, the Commission determined there is a need to revise the current Council District boundaries to meet the “substantially equal number of inhabitants” clause in the Section 15A of the Town code.
The final report, including the proposed options, will be available to view on the Town's website at www.northhempsteadny.gov/redistricting and at the Town Clerks’ office, located at 210 Plandome Road, Manhasset NY 11030.
A public hearing will be held at the June 16, 2022 Town Board meeting to review the proposed options and vote on the reconfigurations of the council district boundaries.
