Fifth of Six Open Houses Scheduled Through June
The City of Naperville invites residents and interested parties to learn more about the proposed election districts for the City through a series of six open houses taking place through June.
The fifth proposed election district open house is being held within proposed District No. 5 on Tues., May 22 from 6:30 to 8PM at Fire Station No. 10, 3201 95th St. Attendees should enter the building through the main entrance. A formal presentation will take place at 6:30PM followed by an open question-and-answer session with a panel of City staff. Staff will also be available to answer individual questions on a one-on-one basis. The formal presentation is identical to presentations given at the first four open houses.
The purpose of the open houses is to explain the rationale behind the proposed district map and answer questions residents may have about the process or how districting affects them. Residents are welcome to attend any meeting.
In the November 2010 election, voters approved a referendum requiring that the City divide into districts beginning with the 2015 municipal election. At the August 16, 2011, City Council meeting, the City Council directed a team of interdepartmental City staff to develop a map showing the proposed districts.
To determine appropriate boundaries, the team utilized census population data as well as the City’s subdivision map and County precinct boundaries. The proposed districts are close to equal population, maintain the integrity of neighborhoods and respect geographic boundaries such as major arterial roads.
