The EHFNA board has been discussing Redistricting and will take a vote to on endorsing a plan. One discussion has been Matt Perry’s Map to have the East Harriet Neighborhood in one ward instead of split into two wards as it is now. See that plan below:

After every census, Minneapolis updates the boundaries of its 13 City Council wards and six Park Board districts to reflect new population counts. The Redistricting Group, made up of 24 Minneapolis volunteers, builds the new maps with input from their communities.
