About the districting process
District Commission and map drawing: The 2020 commission and Districting Master Tony Fairfax completed their work in fall 2020. During the process the commission worked to develop a district plan and district map. They choose core areas of the city that lay the foundation for district boundaries. They discussed draft maps and the finer boundaries of the proposed districts. The commission worked to keep neighborhoods and communities of interest as intact as possible while following the City Charter and applicable laws. In September 2020, they engaged the community and solicited feedback to support the development of the final plan. The commission chose Map A-9 which was adopted by Everett City Council in 2020. View the final report here. See the history page for more information about the 2019-2020 process.
The City Charter and Washington state law require the City of Everett to develop new city council district boundaries following each federal decennial census. The next commission began meeting in early 2022 to select their ninth member, appoint a districting master, and begin evaluating and revising the city council district map based on 2020 Census data. The commission will also host public forums citywide and in each existing district. The final plan will be adopted by the city council by Nov. 1, 2022.
On January 19 2022, Mayor Franklin and the Everett City Council selected the first eight members of the redistricting commission. The ninth member was selected by a vote of the first eight commissioners. This commission has been approved by the Everett City Council and is considered to be geographically diverse.
