The City has released a draft redistricting map, ahead of four scheduled drop-in meetings in November and December to receive public comment on a proposed City redistricting plan.

Guided by the criteria outlined in their January 2022 resolution, City Council aims to create four districts with roughly the same population. The map shows draft districts and allows residents to search property by address to find their district. Areas where council districts change are clearly marked.
Comments on the draft map are welcome at https://greenvillesc.gov/2018/Redistricting.
The City is required to complete the redistricting process because the 2020 United States Census showed a shift in population density within the city limits, meaning the districts are no longer balanced. The law requires population equity among the districts, so the City’s redistricting goal is to have four council districts that are as close to the same number of people as possible and meet additional legal requirements for voting districts.
Drop-in meetings will be held in each council district, however, residents are welcome to attend any or all of the meetings. All meetings will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and will be held as follows:
o Tuesday, November 29 – Greenville Technical College, Community Room/Auditorium, 506 S. Pleasantburg Drive (District 4)
o Thursday, December 1 – Bobby Pearse Community Center, 904 Townes Street (District 1)
o Monday, December 5 – Prisma Health Welcome Center at Unity Park, 111 Welborn Street (District 2)
o Thursday, December 8 – Nicholtown Community Center, 112 Rebecca Street (District 3)
