Last Friday the Chicago City Council Latino Caucus and the Black Caucus introduced new ward maps that would create new wards on the north side. Both maps would move the 32nd Ward, home of Ald. Scott Waguespack, south of Diversey Ave. and move a South Side alderman north to cover Logan Square, Roscoe Village, and West and South Lakeview.
The proposed new boundaries have been created to satisfy substantial population shifts from the 2010 census. Neither map can be approved by the City Council without 41 aldermanic votes. 16 Alderman, including Scott Waguespack (32nd), have endorsed the Latino Caucus map. 32 Aldermen, including Tom Tunney (44th) and Ameya Pawar (47th), have already endorsed the Black Caucus map.
Roscoe View Journal has produced detailed maps showing the proposed boundaries of the proposed Latino Caucus and Black Caucus maps. The maps can be found below, while the original ordinances for the ward boundaries can be found below that.
