While We Were Sleeping, City Council Districts Moved. It Was Kind of Like “Toy Story”

The changes to Philadelphia’s districting were supposed to take place in 2016, but somehow, without anyone noticing, City Council decided to just go ahead and do it now. What that means is that the Councilperson you’ve grown to know and love–or know nothing about–may no longer be your Councilperson. Thankfully, @Mapadelphia, aka Sarah Cordivano, has made a map showing the shifts.

The map first appeared on City Paper’s Naked City blog. The below is a screen shot.
