York Co. to hold hearing on council districts

York County will hold a public hearing Tuesday on its plan to redraw council district lines.

The goal of redistricting is to even out population changes in the county's seven council districts after the release of 2010 U.S. Census data.

Another goal is to maintain roughly the same percentage of minorities in each district.

The public may view the current and proposed County Council districts in York, Rock Hill and online.

The maps are on display outside the County Council chambers in the Agricultural Building at 6 S. Congress St. in York.

They're also posted outside the county's Planning Department Customer Service Center at 1070 Heckle Blvd., Suite 107, in Rock Hill.

The maps are online at www.yorkcountygov.com. Follow the "Redistricting Map Information" link in the "quick links" section on the website.

The public hearing will be held during Tuesday's York County Council meeting. The council usually meets on Mondays but rescheduled the meeting because of the Labor Day holiday.
