Council District Options Update

D3 has submitted a “new” map to City Council – Option 5p: the precinct compliant plan. It is unfortunate, but due to legal shortsightedness and a bureaucratic process, we have had to slightly modify our proposed neighborhood centric map from Census block lines to Bureau of Elections’ precincts. Our intent of protecting neighborhoods has not changed, but some of the boundaries have moved to accommodate precinct lines. You can interactively examine the new plan here, or view an easy-print version of the map here.

The City Council’s vote on the proposed districts is fast approaching, so now is the time to make yourself heard. There are two public meetings today:

City Council Town Hall
Wednesday, February 15, 7 p.m.*
East Lake Baptist Church, 12400 East Jefferson

Gary Brown Town Hall
“Detroit City Council President Pro Tem Gary A. Brown will host Town Halls to receive citizen feedback on four proposed Council Districts’ maps.”
Wednesday, February 15, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Greater Christ Baptist Church, 3544 Iroquois (at Mack Avenue)
