Ward Remap Passed

The City Council passed the ward remap today.  You can read the ordinance and view the official map on the PDF attached here.  According to the Tribune, “The eight aldermen who voted no: Ald. Robert Fioretti, 2nd; Ald. Roderick Sawyer, 6th; Ald. Michael Zalewski, 23rd; Ald. Michael Chandler, 24th; Ald. Rey Colon, 35th; Ald. Nicholas Sposato, 36th; Ald. Scott Waguespack, 32nd; Ald. John Arena, 45th. Ald. Toni Foulkes, 15th, was absent.”

Update 4 (Fri, 7:15AM): The Tribune has published a map that compares old and new boundaries and a story describing how the map came to be.  South Lakeview Neighbors remains in the 32nd ward.

Update 5 (Friday afternoon): Alderman Waugespack’s office has confirmed that the Tribune map is correct and that the text description of the ward (published yesterday) is incorrect.

Update 3 (Thurs, 5:04PM):  I just called Ald. Waugespack’s office.  They’re doing some digging and will get back to me.  As soon as I have authoritative word from the alderman, I’ll post it here.

Update 2: According to this map from WBEZ, SLN is still in the 32nd ward.

Update 1:  See Mia’s comment — Ald. Waugespack’s office says we are still in 32, they think.

  1. If it makes everyone feel any better, the Alderman’s office wasn’t entirely sure. They said they were having issues reading the map too. I thought the same thing that the 2nd ward didn’t go north of Fullerton.

  2. I just called the alderman’s office to find out which ward I would be in and he said I’d still be in 32nd. I am on Fletcher near Paulina

  3. It’s still very confusing but from reading it, it looks like South Lakeview neighbors is possibly in the new 2nd ward. 47th Ward goes north to Belmont and 32nd Ward goes north to Diversey. Leaving Belmont to Diversey out of each of the wards.
