I have asked Jakim Mohammed to share some mapping experiments for the communities along Route 40 to show how political representation can better serve existing neighborhoods by political district maps that do not divide and dilute their voice in government. 

We can all experiment with this mapping project and you are encouraged to share this website with your civic associations and other community leadership. Please bring and share any ideas and maps you may have created! : https://representable.org/?fbclid=IwAR1hHB4OtC56j5nIiAw0yC_74J5COBedf3cubERv0rpYV9PipHF0uz-A1G8
 
For example, State Rep. Larry Lambert has relayed his concern with Claymont which is split into four state senate districts. He believes Claymont can be identified as a Community of Interest and should re-mapped for a stronger representative voice.

I listened to the NCC Council discussion on Redistricting  during their Executive Committee meeting last Tuesday. The federal governement has indicated that while the formal Census Data presentation will be on September 30th, the data will be provided to local governements in the 3rd week of August. The county council picks redistricting committee members and there are strict timelines for production of maps in the council rules. You can click right onto the Agenda Item #6 and listen to that portion of the meeting https://nccde.new.swagit.com/videos/118592

Creative mapping can also look at Communities of Interest that may overlap with Delaware's Cancer Cluster report or sea level and flooding maps reflecting the expectancy of climate change and storm intensification. 

These maps could inform how we plan for growth and could be provided as materials being considered for the 2022 Comprehensive Plan Update.
