Good morning, L.A. It’s Dec. 8.
The Los Angeles City Council officially adopted an ordinance defining new district lines in the city for the next decade on Tuesday.
Now, the new map is headed to Mayor Eric Garcetti’s desk for approval.
Take a look at the new layout below:
The vote was originally scheduled for last week but was bumped back due to the discovery of a small error in the boundary between Districts 1 and 10.
The process to reach this point included a commission, ad hoc committee, and plenty of public input. The ordinance passed 13-0. Councilman Buscaino was absent for the vote.
The creation process for the new bit of cartography took on a handful of issues highlighted by advocates in recent months.
USC and Exposition Park are staying put in District 9, despite a strong push from Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, who represents District 8. Both landmarks fell within the borders of District 8 two maps ago.
The new map is expected to be enacted on Jan. 1.
