Reminder: Redistricting Commission Is Contemplating Reducing Voting Power for All Downtown Neighborhoods and Splitting Greenwich Village

The NYC Redistricting Commission is meeting to consider revisions to its draft July maps for new City Council districts throughout the city, and some changes being contemplated are concerning. The most recent proposal would diminish voting power of downtown residents by packing more people into our districts than others in the city, and might also split Greenwich Village down the middle at Sixth Avenue. Either move would negatively impact our neighborhoods and give us a less-than-equal voice at City Hall. More details are here.

It’s critical that the Commission and our elected officials hear from us that these kinds of changes are not acceptable and must not make it into the final plan.
