EVERETT — People interested in shaping Everett City Council districts in light of 2020 U.S. Census data can apply now through Jan. 3.
The city’s first District Commission had nine members. Each of the seven city council members and the mayor appointed the first eight commissioners, who then selected their ninth member.
Candidates for the commission must be Everett residents, and they can’t be city employees, elected officials or candidates for elected office.
Commission meetings are set to begin in February to select the ninth member, appoint a districting master, and evaluate Census data for potential revisions to the council district map.
Another duty of the commission is to host citywide and district-specific public forums.
The Everett City Council is expected to accept the final map Nov. 1.
Applications can be submitted online at bit.ly/3J3INQZ.
