Redistricting Prompts Changes in 8th District

According to Alderman Donovan, the redistricting process completed last year by the Common Council has brought new 2012 voting wards, polling locations and district boundaries for aldermanic districts, including the 8th District.

  • Prior to redistricting, the southern boundary of the 8th District was aligned with the railroad lines that run along the Kinnickinnic River Parkway and south of the Forest Home Cemetery. Today, the areas south of the rail line that were once in the 8th District are now part of the 11th District.
  • The eastern boundary of the district today is now mostly aligned with S. 20th St. with the area between W. Rogers St. and W. Mitchell St. extending to S. 19th St. This change in redistricting moved some areas that were previously in the 12th District into District 8.

All voting wards within the district have been renumbered, and several have had their boundaries altered.
