Ward 2’s Boundaries Change with Redistricting
With the release of the 2010 census, the District government has had to change the wards’ boundary lines. Each Ward’s population must be within 5% of the average.
The ward redistricting committee has released a map and a report that makes a number of changes to ward boundaries, including moving Shaw east of 9th St. from Ward 2 into Ward 6, excluding the Convention Center, and putting Penn Quarter back in Ward 2.
According to Washington Post blogger Mike DeBonis, a public hearing on the plan is set for 6 p.m. on June 1 at the John A. Wilson Building.
