Shall concern itself with issues relevant to the census, the resulting impact on city, state and federal redistricting of Boston, and voter participation. The committee shall review the results of the federal census figures and the impact they will have on Boston’s revenues and redistricting, and shall also exercise oversight with respect to efforts to increase the level of voter participation in municipal, state and federal elections. THe committee shall concern itself with the redistricting for the city council districts.
After more than one year of information gathering meetings, public hearings and many publicly noticed Committee meetings and working sessions, the City Council approved Docket #0985, Ordinance Amending the City Council Electoral Districts. Attached are the map of the new districts (color format and black and white), data related to the new map for each district, and the committee report. This will be the map for the 2013 City Council election. These districts will be in effect for the 2013 municipal election.
The maps show the new districts in colors or patterns with the 2002 district lines in a darker black color. The top number in each precinct is the Ward and Precinct number with the population listed below.
