A review of the 2020 census data reveals that a population imbalance exists in three of the wards within Texarkana, TX. The City has retained redistricting services with Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta LLP to assist with the redistricting process.
The 2020 census data review has shown a growth in population in Ward 5, and a decrease in population in Wards 1 and 2. This required redistricting of the Wards in Texarkana, TX to provide approximately equal representation within each ward. Following a recent council workshop, and an opportunity for public comment these ward changes are represented in the plan documents below which were adopted on April 25th, 2022.
