Metro Council Districts 7, 16 and 17 Release Proposed District Maps

New proposed maps of Louisville Metro Council Districts 7, 16 and17 have been released to the public.Last night around 40 community members showed up at a regional-district meeting, said minority caucus spokesman Steve Haag. A few community members were concerned about the new district lines, but many people just wanted to understand the redistricting process, he said.All maps are still currently drafts and not entirely final, Haag said. However, deadlines approach for the ad hoc Committee on Redistricting and officials said they want to have an ordinance filed well before the legal deadline of Dec 31.An ordinance can be filed as soon as Oct.13 after seeking public comment, said Councilman Rick Blackwell, chair of the redistricting committee. The council can then take a vote on the final map two weeks later on Oct.27.The committee finished its final meeting where the public could address the entire committee. Now, six regional meetings will take drafts public before the final copies will be considered by the Metro Council.Proposed District 7 map.Proposed District 16 map.Proposed District 17 map.
