Council Redistricting

With the 2020 Census completed and all residents counted, the City of Denton has a population of 139,869 (an astounding 20% growth since 2010). After every Census, the City Council reviews population data to determine if the four Council district boundaries should be updated to maintain population balance between each district.

At the Oct. 19, 2021 City Council meeting, a third party consultant presented its analysis of the 2020 Census results and reported that, while redistricting was not required, the City Council could consider modifications to Council districts.

The City Council has given direction to proceed with a redistricting process and consider redrawing Council district boundaries according to Redistricting Criteria adopted on Oct. 26, 2021.
