‘You still have time to right this major wrong’: Queens residents, officials blast Districting Commission’s plan for new City Council district lines


Residents and elected officials largely rejected the New York City’s Districting Commission‘s draft for new City Council district lines at a public hearing in Astoria Tuesday, Aug. 16.

The Districting Commission released a preliminary map last month which redraws districts across the city. The proposed district lines aim to reflect the population changes reported in the 2020 Census; the districts are redrawn every 10 years.
