The Commission has been meeting since May to review the 2020 Census data, data from the University regarding its residential population, and projections for the residential projects under construction. An analysis of the population data confirms that the City must adjust the current district boundaries in order to have equal districts. The Commission meeting minutes, the Council charge to the Commission, and other information are available at https://www.collegeparkmd.gov/186/Boards-Commissions#RDC .
