The deadline for submitting draft maps was February 4, 2022. Map submissions are no longer being accepted. The tools remain on the website for reference purposes only.
There are different tools for different purposes, and different tools for different levels of technical skill and interest. You may choose to draw either a 4-district or a 5-district map. For 4-district maps, the Mayor would be citywide, directly elected. For 5-district maps, the Mayor position would rotate from among the five Council Members.
1. Paper-only maps for those without internet access or who prefer paper. NOW UPDATED WITH 2020 OFFICIAL CENSUS DATA (PRISONER-ADJUSTED)
