In addition to these maps, voters may eventually check the Fort Bend County Election Office's voter registration database to verify their districts (district data may not be immediately available, as it is being updated with the County elections office as of late November 2016).
Background information on the City's districting process follows:
The City of Fulshear's Home Rule Charter adopted in May 2016 calls for the establishment of five (5) single-member districts. The City has enlisted the services of Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta LLP to assist with a districting plan that meets legal requirements and that can be implemented in an appropriate time frame to meet candidate filings deadlines for the City's upcoming May 2017 municipal elections.
Bickerstaff presented the Draft Illustrative Plan 1 at the October 10 Special City Council meeting, and the plan was adopted by the City Council as the official draft plan for public comments. The purpose of this plan is to demonstrate to the community means of drawing the districts within the guidelines and criteria adopted by the City for redistricting on August 16, 2016, and to stimulate discussion and suggestions from the community.
The City Council welcomes input related to the districting effort, and the public can participate by providing written comments during a public comment period that will run through November 3, 2016, or by attending the public hearing scheduled for November 3. Draft Illustrative Plan I documents are included below, and are also available for public inspection during normal business hours, at Fulshear City Hall, 39603 FM 1093. The plan will be available for inspection through the public hearing in November.
Public comments regarding the plan may be submitted via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include relevant contact information so the City may reach you if required. If you choose to do so, you may also mail comments regarding Illustrative Plan 1 to:
Mr. C.J. Snipes
City Manager, City of Fulshear
P.O. Box 279
Fulshear, Texas 77441
After the public comment period and public hearing, the City Council will meet to consider the illustrative plan and the public comments and suggestions and will then adopt a districting plan for the City to be utilized in elections beginning in May 2017.
