Tippecanoe County Commissioners approve new commission, council districts

Dec 20, 2011

Tippecanoe County Commissioners have given initial approval to new voting districts for the commission and county council.

The Area Plan Commission and election board staff redrew the district lines based on the latest census information.

The county’s population increased 16-percent from 2000 to 2010.

Districts had to be redrawn so that each would include roughly the same number of residents.

Elections officials say maps of the new districts will soon be available on the county website.

A final vote is expected at the commissioner’s December 28th meeting.
