The existing districts for the Shelby County Board of Commissioners.

The Shelby County Commission is launching a new website to share with Shelby County residents proposed redistricting maps for consideration.

The website – www.myshelbytndistricts.com – is available now for residents to review and comment on the maps and participate in virtual meetings to learn more.

The first virtual meeting is Thursday, October 14 at 6:30 p.m. and registration is required.

Every decade following the U.S. Census, Shelby County updates its maps for County Commission and School Board districts. The Shelby County Commission formed an ad hoc committee to work on the task. 

Shelby County Commissioner Van Turner Jr. chairs the ad hoc committee.

“We are inviting Shelby County residents to review the website and attend the virtual community meetings on October 14 and 23,” said Turner. “Your input is critical to the success of this redistricting process.”

The new boundaries must be roughly equal in populations and observe established redistricting guidelines that conform to federal, state, and local directives.

Visit the website to register for the virtual meetings or the Facebook page My Shelby TN Districts.

On the website, residents can sign-up to receive regular updates on the redistricting process, which will conclude in November of this year.
