- Each of the City’s wards must have approximately 28,941 residents, plus or minus 5%;
- Keep the Directors in their Ward;
- Ward boundaries compact and easy to identify;
- Minimize the number for residents who would change Wards.
Checks of the revised boundaries:
- Division of Neighborhoods should be minimized
- Maintain at least three minority majority Wards.
The maps on this page were drawn to meet that requirement, while also creating wards that are also contiguous and inclusive.
