City Council Ward Lines To Be Redrawn
The City Council recently took the first steps in creating new City Council ward boundaries. At the Wednesday, June 21, City Council meeting, a preliminary map with proposed City Council wards was introduced. In addition, Bill 2006-38, which will begin the redistricting process, was introduced.
The City Council is looking at redrawing ward boundary lines because population numbers among the wards vary by more than 5 percent, ranging from 80,801 residents in Ward 1 to 128,872 in Ward 6.
The proposed ward map would have ward populations varying from the smallest, 93,154, to a high of 100,512.
The City Council has scheduled a special Recommending Committee meeting of the whole City Council to discuss the ordinance and solicit public comment. This meeting will take place at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26, in City Council chambers, located at 400 Stewart Avenue. The meeting will be broadcast live on KCLV Cable Channel 2 and available live on the Internet at www.kclv.tv. Members of the public will have the opportunity at the meeting to comment on the proposed map.
Copies of the current and proposed City Council ward maps are available below, or in the City Clerk’s office.
