ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Tuesday night, Enterprise city commissioners approved the plan for new district maps that splits the six voting districts into subsets of 5,000 to 6,000 residents.

The city does this each time a census is completed, which happens every ten years.

The latest census showed the total population of Enterprise is about 27,000 residents.

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN)—On Tuesday night, the city of Enterprise will present a public forum for its redistricting plan.

Every ten years after the release of the U.S. Census data, Enterprise officials examine the populations in the five city council seats.

Under the proposed plan, each district will have between 5,000 to 6,000 residents. Mayor William Cooper says the review of the districts is important, and a required objective for fair voting districts.

From 2010-to-2020, the census indicated the city grew to more than 27,000 residents. It’s believed that number is now closer to 30,000.

The public hearing to discuss district changes will take place before the Enterprise City Council meeting which begins at six Tuesday night.
