Council adopts new district boundaries
New district boundaries have been drawn for Arvada City Council.
As required by Arvada City Charter ordinance 4284 chapter four, council must adopt new district boundary lines every 10 years to account for changes in population.
Each district now has about 25,000 to 26,000 residents, said Arvada City Clerk Christine Koch.
Council adopted the new boundary lines on March 4.
Because district boundaries have changed, residents can verify who their representative is on council by looking at the map at www.maps.arvada.org/arcserver/council_map.shtml and typing in their address.
The city is holding an election this November for three council seats — District 1 Councilmember, District 3 Councilmember and Councilmember-At-Large.
Mayor Pro Tem and District 1 Councilwoman Rachel Zenzinger has announced her intent to run for re-election this November.
District 3 Councilwoman Shelly Cook has announced she will not run for re-election; John Marriot and Justin Vicroy have announced their intent to run for the seat.
Councilman-At-Large Don Allard has not yet announced if he will run for re-election.
All prospective candidates will be collecting at least 25 signatures from registered electors on a candidacy petition Aug. 6-26 to qualify as a candidate.
The At-Large seat will be on all ballots for registered voters in Arvada.
The District 1 and District 3 seats will only be on ballots sent to residents in the respective districts.
