The final county board redistricting plan has been approved and maps for the new individual board districts are now available.
The La Crosse County Board has adopted the new and final supervisory district map, which will increase the size of the board to 30 members.
The maps adds a district outside the City of La Crosse, reflecting population growth in suburban parts of the county. You can view the new map, plus individual maps for the new districts (with street names included) by clicking this link.
Guiding principles for the county's redistricting process have included:
-All districts must be substantially equal in population.
-Districts must generally consist of whole wards or municipalities.
-Territory within each district must be contiguous (except for island territory) and compact.
The redistricting plan was prepared by county GIS staff using population estimates provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, and then presented to the county's redistricting committee for input, before moving to the full county board for approval.
