Lane County is redrawing its commissioner district boundaries. Map C, shown here, is one of the final four maps still under consideration.

Lane County’s Independent Redistricting Committee (IRC) plans to vote Oct. 28 on the final maps that will be sent in ordinance form to the Board of County Commissioners for adoption. The virtual meeting begins at 6 p.m.

The IRC narrowed down the total number of maps for consideration down to four maps on Monday, Oct. 25. The IRC is responsible for presenting up to three redistricting options to the Board of County Commissioners.

The Independent Redistricting Committee (IRC) is composed of 15 members. Lane County’s Home Rule Charter requires that boundaries for Lane County commissioner districts be evaluated and updated at least once every ten years.

The IRC is only responsible for redistricting the five county commissioner districts. The Sheriff, District Attorney and Tax Assessor are elected by all Lane County voters and do not have sub-districts.

The maps can be viewed at www.LaneCountyOR.gov/IRCMaps.

To provide public comment, join the IRC’s virtual meeting Oct. 28 (log-in information here ) or provide written public comment to judy.williams@lanecountyor.gov.
