What do you think of the Draft Maps?
The Council wants to hear what you like and dislike about each initial draft map posted below.
For each draft plan, there is an Adobe PDF maps and an Adobe PDF demographic profile. And at the top of the list is a link to an interactive map that allows you to zoom in and out to see plan details (even down to the individual house).
The Council wants to know not just which map(s) you like or dislike, but why you feel that way about each map. These are the first drafts, not necessarily the final maps, and future versions can include revisions aimed at addressing the concerns raised by residents.
Please take the time to look at them and share your thoughts, either by email to MorganHill@NDCresearch.com, by letter, at a Council meeting, or using the contact form.
And, as a reminder, you can also draw your own map! See the "Draw a Map" page for instructions and data to do so.
Notes about the draft maps:
Maps numbered with a "b" (such as 1b, 2b, etc.) have been adjusted from their original form by the City's demographic consultant to make them population-balanced and/or contiguous. Maps named after colors (Green, Orange, etc.) were drawn by the City's demographic consultant.
(The "NDC" mentioned in the table is National Demographics Corporation, the City's demographic consultant team for this project.)
(All of the population-balanced and contiguous draft maps are shown in the online interactive viewer at this link.)
