A map that outlines new ward boundaries for Springfield’s 2015 City Council elections has been submitted for a vote later this month. But even though drafts of the map have been circulating for about a year, some aldermen say the process is moving too quickly.
The latest proposal was submitted by Ward 1’s Frank Edwards… who won’t be able to run under the new map in 2015 because of term limits.
Edwards says the map does not make major changes to the city’s 10 wards. But other aldermen say the map could have a big impact on some wards… and they want more public input before a final vote.
