City Council Ward Redistricting

Urbana Ward Map Redistricting Graphic

City Council Ward boundaries must be adjusted to reflect the Census 2020 population count and to rebalance the population among the seven wards. This redistricting must be completed before the November 2024 petition filing deadline for the April 2025 municipal election. A new map is scheduled to be selected by the Urbana City Council in June 2024.

After receiving nine maps through an open submittal process utilizing the Dave's Redistricting website, three finalists were selected for further review and consideration. Members of the public were invited to provide feedback on the proposed finalists. City Council members reviewed the input received and selected a proposed final map.

After further Council discussion and Council modifications to the final map, a consensus was reached on a modified final map. Staff was then directed to prepare an ordinance and the final map for approval.

The ordinance and final map will be presented at the June 17, 2024, Committee of the Whole meeting. You can view the map in the PDF attachment below.

 

Feedback on the proposed final map may be emailed to: wardmaps@urbanaillinois.us
