Seattle Redistricting Commission seeks additional comments

OCTOBER 27, 2022

On Wednesday, October 26, the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods issued a press release and announcement on behalf of the Seattle Redistricting Commission. The Commission is now offering three different “discussion maps” along with to the Malaba Map now titled the “Amended Draft Map.” The Amended Draft Map is the official draft map following a 4 to 1 vote by the Commission on October 18th. The three “discussion maps” were discussed at the October 25th meeting of the Commission.

The Commission is planning to vote on a final map on November 8th. They will hold a special meeting on October 31st that the public is invited to attend online. The Commission will take additional public comments on the four different maps. Two maps are extremely similar and split Magnolia between two districts (Amended Draft Map and the “Juarez Discussion Map“). The two other maps keep Magnolia whole (“Nickels Discussion Map” and “O’Sullivan Sponsored Discussion Map.”)
