MAP: Reapportioning Columbia's wards
September 2, 2011 | 5:13 p.m. CDT
The city’s Ward Reapportionment Committee will hold its final public hearing on proposed ward boundaries at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the City Council chambers at the Daniel Boone Building, 701 E. Broadway. The committee and city staff have drafted five trials, all of which remain on the table for discussion. The primary goal of reapportionment is to increase the population of the First Ward, which has fallen behind in population over the past 10 years. After Wednesday’s hearing, the committee will meet Monday to discuss the boundaries. A recommendation is due to the council by Sept. 15.
