Suggested Ward Map revealed by Black Caucus

Location: Chatham, Chicago, IL, USA
Fomer 6th Ward Alderman Fredrenna Lyle posted on her Facebook page a link to Maze Jackson's blog which announced the news of the Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus' proposed ward re-map.

What is noted is that 1 black ward was lost in the process.

A quick reading of the map showed some interesting things:
  • The 6th Ward (which this blog covers) now has up to 5 wards with influence in the Chatham community area
  • Englewood will be represented by "only" 5 wards (Thanks to RAGE for the heads up)
  • Also, in regads to Englewood, more of it would be represented by the 6th ward
  • Northeast side wards such as the 46th, 48th, 49th & 50th retain as only one community area as their main base (Uptown, Edgewater, Rogers Park and West Ridge, respectively).

This is the link to the blog entry.

here's a picture of the re-map

What are your thoughts on the proposed re-map? How would things change for you?

  1. There appears to be very little change as far as the 6th ward. The same areas of Greater Grand Crossing (East Englewood) and the same portion of Englewood haven't change.
