The recommended draft map displaces 16 constituencies, mainly along the district boundaries. It was created as an update of an earlier map project and ensures that the area along Central Avenue and near the former Eastland Mall site remains an intact community of interest – with characteristics shared and represented by the same district representative of the city council. This is all the more important as the old shopping center site is being redeveloped.
In the recommended draft B1 map, District 7 would remain unchanged. The proposed map is also expected to maintain the Republican Party’s historic electoral advantage in Districts 6 and 7.
The recommended B1 map project closely matches the
criteria approved by the committee on September 7. These criteria include balancing populations, maintaining compact districts, and bringing together communities with similar interests. The draft map also follows the boundaries of the electoral districts and takes into consideration the race of the residents of the district.
