In a quest for public input, the city has extended its redistricting deadline until Wednesday and will hold a public meeting Tuesday evening.

A population increase of 1 percent — or 1,411 residents — is prompting the change in boundaries for two City Commission districts.

The public is invited to weigh in at a Tuesday meeting at City Hall, hosted by commissioners Beam Furr and Heidi O'Sheehan who represent Districts 2 and 3, respectively. The 6 p.m. meeting will be in Room 215.

District 2 primarily runs between Federal Highway and Interstate 95, east to west, and Sheridan Street and Pembroke Road, north to south.

District 3 lies between 26th and 56th avenues from east to west, and Sheridan Street and Hollywood Boulevard from north to south.
