Delineates New Commissioner Districts
2011) Yesterday the North Carolina General Assembly passed
House Bill 719, which establishes new districts for the
Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners, bypassing the County
Commission, which had established a process for delineating the
was necessary to make the population of each district equitable
based on population shifts since 2000 as shown in 2010 census
As expected, Steele
Creek is no longer entirely within District 2. Two Steele Creek
precincts along the South Carolina border (122 and 229) were
transferred from District 2 to District 6. Some proposals had more
Steele Creek precincts being shifted, so the impact on Steele Creek
is not as much as it could have been.

the new districts. Click on either map to see a larger, pdf version.
