As the City of Lone Tree continues to grow, the council approved changes to voting district boundaries ahead of the spring 2024 municipal election.
The city is split into two voting districts and the city charter requires that the voting districts have approximately the same number of residents, according to a city staff report.
There will be a city council election in May 2024, where three seats will be up for election — the mayor’s seat, a District 1 seat and a District 2 seat.
“Every time we have an election, we need to look at our population and decide if we need to propose redistricting our council districts,” said Kristin Baumgartner, the deputy city manager.
The voting districts in the City of Lone Tree prior to the city council approving changes to the district boundaries on Sept. 5, 2023.
Under the existing voting districts, the projected population counts for 2024 estimated that 7,396 people would be in District 1, representing 46.4% of the total population, and 8,536 people would be in District 2, representing 53.6% of the total population.
City staff recommended adjusting the district boundaries so that two apartment complexes move from District 2 to District 1 — the AVRA at RidgeGate Station and Talus at RidgeGate.
Staff also recommended moving the NorthSky neighborhood from District 1 to District 2.
The Lone Tree City Council approved changes to the voting district boundaries in the city during a meeting on Sept. 5, 2023.
With these changes, an estimated 8,026 people will be in District 1, representing 50.4% of the population, and 7,906 people will be in District 2, representing 49.6% of the population.
The city council unanimously approved the voting district changes during its Sept. 5 meeting.
