At last Tuesday’s meeting, the City Council unanimously voted to adopt the “October Map 1” as the new College Park Council district map.
The new map will define new Council districts following the 2023 City election for the next ten years until the next census data is available.
The new map maintains the current southern boundary of District 1 on the west of Rhode Island Ave; however, moves a few dozen homes around Duvall Field from District 1 to District 2.
The new map will add homes in the Cherry Hill and Autoville neighborhoods to District 1.
You can see the detailed view of the new district boundaries on this interactive map: https://abridge.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=8ee2da0bb755439ba478f90f52ac06f2. Please select “Ordinance 22-O-09 October Plan 1 Map” from the Layers menu on the left.
I want to thank the residents for their comments on the redistricting maps. I also want to thank the members of the Redistricting Commission (RDC) and our staff for working with the Council in producing various maps during this lengthy redistricting process. It was truly collaborative teamwork.
