Staff has compiled ordinance information as well as case numbers and other pertinent information for all potential annexations. Annexation information, including an interactive map, is available at: https://austintexas.gov/page/annexation. As of the date of this memo, five annexations have been completed in 2022. A sixth is scheduled for Council consideration on 9/1/2022, and a seventh has been indefinitely postponed. In relation to single member districts: • • three of the annexations were full purpose annexations of limited purpose jurisdiction areas and therefore do not require any changes to the single member districts map because all limited purpose jurisdiction areas were assigned Council Districts when the ICRC adopted the revised District map in October, 2021; two of the annexations were full purpose annexations of Extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) and therefore are brought to the ICRC for recommended District assignments; and • one annexation is a limited purpose annexation of ETJ and will also need to be assigned a District by the ICRC. Staff has provided District recommendations for each of the annexation areas. One annexation planned at the time of this memo has been scheduled for Council consideration on September 1, 2022.

*** External Email - Exercise Caution *** Dear ICRI Committee members, We are also residents of Great Hills - and live on Rimner Cove - a cul-de-sac off of Rain Creek Parkway between Fire Oak and Lost Horizon. It has come to our attention that a small section of Great Hills (along the west side of Rain Creek Parkway and cul-de-sacs between Fire Oak and Lost Horizon) have been carved out from District 10 and moved to District 6. This includes our home. The great majority of Great Hills is and remains in District 10, while this small section of Great HIlls has been carved to now be a part of basically a Williamson county region. We do not agree with this proposed change. We also believe that the communication about these proposed changes was too limited. We believe that we should have received notification, through the mail, that our homes were in a "change" zone. We did not receive any such communication to our knowledge. We believe that this change does not make sense. While we realize that there are a lot of factors that go into redistricting - and a certain balance is wanted between the color of people's skin, their political leanings, etc - there is also the practical aspect about the neighborhood being represented as a whole, and interests of that geographic area, regardless of race or political leaning. We do not believe that our interests will be served by becoming a part of District 6 - by the mere fact that the great majority of our neighborhood (Great Hills) is being represented in another district, of which we will have no say. Please consider moving this group of homes back to District 10 - we ask you to prioritize what is best for the homeowners that have to live with these decisions. We left voice messages for Matt Dugan and Lisa Rodriguez - and received a call back from Lisa Rodriguez. We would like more information about further action we can take to make our opinions heard. It looks like there is a meeting scheduled for December 15. Hopefully our letter above can be read and shared with the council, as we are unable to attend this meeting. Please let us know what else we can do. We look forward to hearing from someone to understand the rationale for the change as well. Thank you …

P a g e | 1 TRAVIS COUNTY TAX ASSESSOR-COLLECTOR AND VOTER REGISTRAR Voter Registration Division 5501 Airport Blvd., Austin 78751 512.854.9473 traviscountytax.org Date: December 7, 2021 From: Travis County Tax Office Voter Registration Division and the Travis County Clerk Elections Division Regarding: Election Precinct Boundaries Proposed Plan for 2022 Following redistricting at both the State and County level, Travis County Voter Registration undertook the task of realigning precinct boundaries. During this process, staff reviewed precinct sizes and dramatically reduced precincts that were near or exceeded the maximum size of 5,000 voters. During the process of realigning precincts, staff looked at the following as the boundary dividers: 1. Highways and Toll Roads 2. Expressways, Arterials, FM Roads 3. Neighborhood Collectors 4. Waterways—river, lake, creeks, watersheds 5. Railroads 6. Parcels—property lines 7. Parks, green belts Our goal was to bring neighborhoods back together when possible. Legislative boundaries didn’t allow us to be 100% successful, however, we were able to make modifications to legacy precinct boundaries that had split neighborhoods. We were able to reunite neighborhoods or communities of interest in many cases. A notice was mailed to both County Chairs, all election judges, and precinct chairs for both parties. In the case of the political party County Chairs, we hand delivered the notice and a copy of the backup. Additionally, the week prior to Thanksgiving, both County Chairs and key staff received email correspondence with our map link for them to share with precinct chairs for input. We consequently did receive communication back and were able in most cases to accommodate requests and/or suggestions. In some cases, we were unable to make the modifications due to legislative boundaries that do not allow us to cross over precinct lines. P a g e | 2 With new precincts created, the Division also looked at the precinct numbering system or the lack of one. With this opportunity, a system was developed in precinct numbering. This system creates communities of interest within the system. Stakeholders who will benefit with this new system are: 1. Elections Division—in planning and directing resources regionally 2. Precinct Chairs—organizing in their region 3. General Public—organized manner in which to identify where their precinct is located 4. Elected Officials and candidates—better planning in identifying precincts as they maneuver meetings in the county. The numbering system follows this rule—the County Courthouse is ground zero. From that point the first precinct in …
