Ada Co. Refines Map for Commission Elections with Latest Census Data

This week, Ada County Commissioners approved a new district map dividing the county into three districts following the release of 2020 census results.

“He was too small compared to the other two,” County Clerk Phil McGrane told commissioners. “The southern part of District 1 was where the significant demographic shifts happened, so we needed to make some changes.”
The boundary of District 3, currently represented by Commissioner Kendra Kenyon, slid south in southeast Boise near Harris Ranch and south of the Flying Y. District 3 also slid north in District 2, represented by Commissioner Rod Beck, north of Cherry Lane on the county. extreme west.
