Proposed New County Commissioner Redistricting
The Board of County Commissioners of the County of Alamosa is proposing new Commissioner Districts based on the 2020 US Census Data. A Public Hearing was held on March 22, 2023. There will be a 30 day comment period before approving the final redistricting map on April 26, 2023 at the Regular Meeting of the Alamosa Board of County Commissioners. A written comment can be mailed to Alamosa County, 8900 A Independence Way, Alamosa or email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, April 25, 2023. The proposed Redistricting Map can be viewed on the County Website or at the Alamosa County Administration Building, 8900 A Independence Way, Alamosa, CO.
Colorado Revised Statute 30-10-306(4) states, in part, that the County Commissioner Districts occur after each federal census of the United States, each commissioner district must be established, revised, or altered to assure that such districts are nearly equal in population as possible based on the redistricting population data prepared by staff of the Legislative Council and Office of Legislative Legal Services. Due to a nationwide delay in states receiving 2020 US Census Data, the Colorado State Legislature passed legislation to delay county commissioner redistricting until 2023, to allow time to analyze data and adequately prepare. The new districts will be effective in the 2024 election cycle.
