The Applicant Review Panel (Panel) selected a pool of the 60 most qualified applicants from the qualified Commission pool of applicants (click to view the official Panel Submission). Per the charter, the determination of the most qualified applicants was based on relevant analytical skills, the ability to be impartial, residency in various parts of the City of Austin, and an appreciation for Austin’s diverse demographics and geography.
Each member of the Austin City Council could have removed, in writing, 1 applicant from the pool of 60 applicants selected by the Panel. None of the applicants included in the pool were removed by the Council Member strike process. Click to see the official notice that no strikes were exercised.
After receiving the remaining pool of Commission applicants, the City Auditor held a public meeting and randomly drew 8 names from that pool of applicants to serve on the Commission. The public drawing was held on Wednesday, May 22 at 12:30 p.m. in the City Hall Boards and Commissions Room (301 West Second Street). Click to view the drawing.
The 8 selected Commissioners will appoint 6 additional Commissioners from the pool of remaining applicants to ensure that the Commission reflects the diversity of the City of Austin. At least 1 of the Commissioners shall be a student that is duly enrolled in a community college or university in Austin. These 14 Commissioners will constitute Austin’s first Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission empowered to establish the boundaries of the 10 new geographic council districts for the City of Austin.
Each Commission Member will serve a term of office that expires when the first member of the succeeding Commission is appointed in the year after the national census is taken. The qualified applicants from the remaining pool that were not selected for service remain in the pool of applicants that will be used to fill vacancies on the Commission as required.
