The work of an independent commission hoping to draw a new ward map for City Council will officially begin its work this week after leaders named members of the 13-person commission Tuesday, saying they hope to gain aldermanic support in the coming months.
Members of CHANGE Illinois on Tuesday touted the diversity of the new commission that aims to use community input to influence the decennial task of redrawing Chicago’s ward boundaries rather than leaving it up to aldermen in a largely closed-door process.
