2011 Precinct Redistricting

Every ten years, Hidalgo County Commissioners’ Court is tasked with the responsibility of redistributing themapimageforwebsite1.JPG population equally among the four precincts.  The 2010 Census figures indicated an imbalanced population distribution due to substantial population growth in some parts of the County, while other areas experienced a decrease in population.  As a result, County Commissioner precinct boundaries must be redrawn to evenly distribute the population; the redistricting will also affect justice of the peace and constable jurisdictions. 

The attorneys hired by the County for redistricting services have drawn proposed maps, which can be viewed on the County’s website here:

Hidalgo County Commissioners’ Court has held three public hearings to give the public the opportunity to comment on proposed County Commissioner precinct maps. As a result of the input submitted at these hearings, the consultants along with the members of Commissioners' Court are modifying variations of the proposed maps. These modifications can be viewed at the next public hearing, which will be held on Monday, August 29, 2011 in Precinct 1.  Residents are invited to attend the public hearing and submit their comments on the proposed maps.  Public comments may also be submitted online here >>.
