Little Rock ward proposal redrawn

NEW MAP: Ward 1 changes.
  • NEW MAP: Ward 1 changes.

Little Rock city officials have redrawn a proposed new ward map for the city. It responds, particularly, to complaints from the Capitol View/Stifft Station neighborhood, which wanted to remain in Ward 3 rather than shift to Ward 1, and to Ward 1 City Director Erma Hendrix, who wanted more territory north of I-630. Her ward must grow because of population loss.

This link will take you to a version of the map that can be manipulated. You can enlarge it see precisely where boundaries fall.

On the jump is the new alignment by population and racial breakdown. Ward 1 grows from 70 percent in the original city proposal to 76 percent black.
