Group launches plan to establish independent advisory commission to redraw Chicago’s 50 wards
A group advocating for an independent commission to redraw Chicago’s 50 wards launched an initiative Tuesday to create the commission, but some aldermen who support remapping reform still see most of the power resting in City Council’s hands.
The 13-member Chicago Advisory Redistricting Commission will work with “neighborhood and good government groups” to collect community input and draw a ward map CHANGE Illinois and advocates hope “will win support in the City Council,” Madeleine Doubek, the organization’s executive director, said Tuesday.
