Bob Dykes of Triad Research Group presented a plan to Council to reshape Akron's 10 wards at a special meeting Monday, Oct. 29. The most significant changes in the redistricting plan occur to Wards 1, 2 and 10. Ward 1 would encompass Highland Square, West Hill, Downtown Akron and The University of Akron; Ward 2 would become North Hill and Chapel Hill; and Ward 10 would become primarily Goodyear Heights. Redistricting is required following each census. The charges given Dykes were to even the population among wards and keep neighborhood together.
