Loveland Redistricting Town Hall and Community Conversation, December 7, 2022
Loveland is in the midst of Redistricting at the city level! Redistricting will change the borders of Loveland's four Wards and may impact in which Ward you live and who will represent you in the City Council after the next city election.
The South Larimer Discussion Group of the League of Women Voters of Larimer County hosted a citywide Town Hall and Community Conversation to foster governmental transparency, learn about Loveland's Redistricting process, and to offer an opportunity for attendees to share their comments and suggestions focused on redistricting with Mayor Marsh and the City Council members. Our invited guest presenter was Delynn Coldiron, Loveland City Clerk, who is well versed in the statutory requirements and City Council Charter which provide the guideposts that the redistricting process must follow.
