VALPARAISO — Valparaiso residents submitted a "record" number of redistricting maps, said attorney Brian Bosma of Kroger Gardis and Regas LLP.
This year, the city allowed public participation in the City Council redistricting process, providing a toolkit to help residents craft their own maps. Five people submitted six maps; however one was later withdrawn. At the same time, City Council President Casey Schmidt, R-3rd, and Council Vice President Diana Reed, D-1st, worked with Kroger Gardis and Regas to create a map, called the "coordinator's map."
