What Divides Us? A Preview of Wednesday's BW

Posted By on Tue, Jul 12, 2011 at 12:34 PM

One final public hearing is scheduled for tomorrow night concerning redistricting in Idaho. Following tomorrow evening's session at 7 p.m. at Meridian City Hall, the Citizen Commission for Reapportionment begins the complex task of dividing Idaho's 35 legislative districts into new territories. Considering that Idaho's population since 2000 has grown by 273,729 people, the commission will need to factor city and county lines while considering neighborhood, tribe and community desires.

In tomorrow's edition of Boise Weekly, we examine the the issue of redistricting through the eyes of Idaho's Latino community, which has grown 73 percent in the last decade.
