Maps shown are DRAFTS for discussion and feedback, so that the city can determine which version or versions should be brought before the City Council for further discussion and adjustment.

There are six different drafts that we have put together for review and comment purposes only. None of these maps are final. These maps are WARD ONLY maps. Precinct maps will be developed after the public comment period for Ward Maps. 

Public Comment Period for Ward Maps Ends October 1. (subject to change)

Note that the colors in the maps are the wards. Click on a colored section to see the ward and data about that ward.

The black lines in the draft maps are the existing boundaries, while the Red Lines show the proposed boundaries in that particular draft. So use the black lines to orient on the proposed change in each map. 

Interact with the map by adding a point (select the blue box at the top of each map) to point out a suggestion or concern. Click on a ward to see the ward number and data behind it. You can also comment on the maps using the comment field at the bottom of each map.

Be sure to tell us which map is your favorite and why.
