SEE: Proposed 2012 Redistricting Maps for Fridley
The city council will review new ward and precinct lines in March.
In February, the new statewide redistricting map put the city of Fridley into a single state Senate district and a single state House district.
Now Anoka County and the City of Fridley are proposing political boundaries within Fridley that take into account the 2010 U.S. Census figures.
(See the PDF maps with this post. The county's map shows population counts and block-by-block detail. The city's map shows polling place locations.)
The Fridley City Council will consider the 2012 redistricting map on March 12 and March 26, according to a post at the City of Fridley website, before an April 4 deadline to submit the plan to Anoka County and the State of Minnesota.
"We have reviewed our wards and found that there is less than 1% deviation of the population within each ward," the City of Fridley redistricting post says, but one change is this:
Because there is longer a legislative split between Ward 2 Precinct 4 and Ward 2 Precinct 5, the City Council will be combining those two precincts back into one precinct. The voters will continue to vote at North Park Elementary.
