- Also on Wednesday, March 2, the Common Council Legal Committee meets at 6:00 p.m. At its special meeting last Thursday, the committee took up the issue of adjusting ward boundaries to reflect changes in population of the wards reported in the 2020 census. Since 2016, when the current ward boundaries were drawn, there has been a 5 percent increase in the population of the First Ward, and a 7 percent decrease in the population of the Fourth Ward.
At Thursday's meeting, the committee was still awaiting opinions from counsel to the Council and NYCOM (New York Conference of Mayors) on whether or not the changes in population required adjusting the ward boundaries to achieve wards of equal population. Click here to join the Zoom.
