Information for Seward including links to info at the City web site, text of the SNG Executive Committee letter to the Redistricting Group, and the maps under discussion. 

City site for Redistricting

City Site for Current Ward Maps

Link to the interactive ward map at City of Minneapolis Site.
It’s not very intuitive especially in figuring out how to display the past versions. You have to find the little button that says “Show Contents of Map” located in the upper left, just above the heading “Minneapolis Draft Maps”.

Next public hearings and the last chance for the public to be heard

You only need to attend one of these hearings. Public testimony to the Group is the best way to get your opinion across.

You can also provide feedback by emailing Redistricting2012@minneapolismn.gov. Include your real name and residence address.
