Mandated to redraw Seattle City Council District lines to ensure that each district has approximately 105,000 residents, the Seattle Redistricting Commission has released its proposed map for public comment.
Several districts undergo significant boundary changes with the proposed map. District 5 would move south to add Crown Hill and North Beach, pushing District 6 south to take in about two-thirds of Magnolia and shrinking District 7. District 1 would move farther east to cover Georgetown, SoDo, and much of Pioneer Square.
Public comment is being accepted on the proposed map until November 8.
