Remapping Little Rock wards

Metroplan has updated population numbers in existing Little Rock wards in preparation for redrawing the wards to reflect population changes. Nearly all the city growth was in Wards 5 and 7, up 11,132 and 4, 861 respectively. Those wards will have to shrink. The changes in the other wards: Ward 1, -3,906 ; Ward 2, -621; Ward 3, -1,089; Ward 4, -168; Ward 6, +182. Ward 1, then, will have to grow a good bit.

Note: Four wards currently have majority black populations, but only three have black representatives. B.J. Wyrick, who is white, represents Ward 7. Little Rock also has three directors elected citywide. All are white — Joan Adcock, Gene Fortson and Dean Kumpuris.
