L.A. City Council redistricting, the first draft

    A city com­mis­sion has pro­posed changes to the lines that define Los Angeles City Coun­cil dis­tricts. The pub­lic will have five weeks to re­view the maps and com­ment be­fore the pan­el's fi­nal vote and a plan goes to the City Coun­cil for con­sid­er­a­tion. The maps be­low show how the changes com­pare to the cur­rent map. — Los Angeles Times  Jan. 25, 2012

    A revised version of these maps was released on Feb. 17, 2012, and can be viewed here.
