A New Year, a New District Map

January 3, 2012 4:23 PM

Redistricting will officially go into effect on January 1st, 2012. Approximately 3,000 new constituents will be welcomed into District 8.

For the first time in decades all UW dormitories will now be contained in the same district, eliminating confusion for many students new to Madison. Lakeshore dorms west of Babcock Drive, including Kronshage and Bradley, are now in District 8. In the Southwest, Smith and Ogg are also new additions.

The boundaries are also more consistent around campus. Student housing between N Randall Ave and N Park St is now entirely in District 8. This includes Toppers Pizza on Regent Street and housing areas adjacent to Camp Randall.

Outside of District 8, many student community groups remain intact. Graduate housing on along old University Avenue and Eagle Heights will continue to be represented by Alder Shiva Bidar-Sielaff in District 5. Additionally, the Langdon Greek Community will now almost entirely reside in District 2 with Alder Bridget Maniaci.

As others around the nation have used redistricting for political purposes, the City of Madison, and particularly the districts surrounding the campus, has set a standard that other communities with major Universities could follow. It is my opinion that the modifications to district will strength the student voice on the council for the next decade.
