How Will Ward Redistricting Affect Old Brooklyn?
Join the Cleveland City Council members from the Near West Side neighborhoods and community partners to learn about the process of redrawing the city's wards.
In November 2008, Cleveland voters approved the redistricting of political boundaries so that one ward-based council member would represent every 25,000 residents. The passage of the ballot measure likely spells a reduction in the number of councilpersons, which will take effect following the elections to be held this November. Consultants are currently in the process of estimating the city's population and defining corresponding ward lines.
The meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 4 at 7pm at the Applewood Center, 3518 West 25th Street.
