Colorado Independent Congressional Redistricting Commission Announces This Week's Public Hearings on First Staff Plan
Congressional District 1 and Congressional District 8
What: The Colorado Independent Congressional Redistricting Commission will hold public hearings on the first staff plan for the state’s eight congressional districts this week. Each hearing will focus on two different districts, however the public can testify about any district or topic at any hearing.
In order to maximize the opportunity to hear public testimony despite the condensed schedule, and due to growing concerns about COVID-19, the commissioners will not travel but will instead hold hearings virtually in each district over the course of four days. While the hearings are virtual, there will be limited opportunities to come to a staffed site for help testifying remotely. The staffed site location details will be emailed to anyone who registers to speak at that location.
For these hearings, speakers must register in advance. Registration for the staffed sites will close 24 hours before the hearing time so staff can plan for setup. Registration for remote participation will close at the hearing's scheduled start time.
Coloradans are asked to sign up to testify in advance and can do so by visiting https://redistricting.colorado.gov/content/meeting-comment/
Requests for sign language interpretation, Spanish-language translation, or other accommodations can be made when signing up to testify or by contacting staff at email@example.com
