Redistricting occurs every ten (10) years after new census data is released. Pursuant to Alabama Code §11-44D-8, the Mayor has heretofore filed with the City Council a Report and Recommended Map for the redistricting of the five (5) City districts. The Mayor’s recommended plan and map is on file and available for inspection in the Office of the City Clerk during regular business hours and is also available for inspection on the City’s Internet website at https://www.opelika-al.gov/.
All interested persons are invited to attend said public workshops to express their opinions relating to redistricting. Persons unable to attend the workshops may submit their opinions, comments and views to the Office of the City Clerk. 204 South 7th Street, Opelika, AL 36801.
