Section 207. Change in districts. The County Legislature shall appoint a reapportionment commission of seven persons evaluate the existing County legislative districts for equity and representation in relation to population: (a) within six months after the publication of census tracts and block statistics based upon each federal census taken in the County; or (b) within six months after the publication of census tracts and block statistics based upon any federal or special population census, taken pursuant to Section 20 of the General Municipal Law, and held not more than once every five years; or (c) after any annexation which has the effect of increasing or decreasing the population of any County Legislative district by more than ten percent. The reapportionment commission shall include representation of the two principal political parties, and residents of the County in such proportion so as to reasonably reflect the demographic composition of the County.
The reapportionment commission shall review the population data and within three months after appointment shall make recommendations, if necessary, in the form of a proposed local law as to changes in the boundaries of County Legislative districts. In its deliberations to redesign County Legislative districts, the reapportionment commission shall consider the application of the "one person, one vote" concept and the equal protection clauses of the fourteenth amendment of the United States Constitution and Article 1, Sections I and II, of the New York State Constitution.
