Ward 7 ANC Redistricting

While other wards have seen the iterations of the proposed ANC redistricting boundaries, Ward 7 hasn't been afforded that opportunity.  Sure I could've attended the meetings, but with all the other blast emails we get on the listserv, the information just as easily could've been shared to those of us that didn't attend.  I requested an electronic copy, to which I'm being mailed a hardcopy.  Shout out to ANC7D01 for getting a hardcopy and scanning it for the masses.

In looking at the report, I'm not sure why we couldn't get it electronically in the first place.  But that's neither here nor there, since we have it now.... Moving on...

It looks like ANC 7B will have almost the entire Pennsylvania Ave corridor with the exception of 1 block face from 40th to Southern Ave SE. ANC 7B06 (Fairfax Village + a little extra) maintains its boundary as far as I can tell.  The report doesn't include any maps.

Apparently 7A is changing their name to 7F.  There was no rationale given.  *raises brow*.  I've heard the name change is over some nonsense.  But I wasn't there, so who am I to judge. *side eye*

Anywho.... Ms V has provided the report below and here is the information on the hearing
