Courtesy of a reader, a Google map of Plainfield wards


Tinted Google map is zoomable to highest magnification.
 
Plainfield Today reader 'YBA' posted a link to a Google map showing Plainfield's FOUR WARDS, with contact information on Council representatives.

The map, which can be found here, uses tinted overlays, which you can see through up to the highest magnification level. It was created in August 2010, by Google user 'PGS' and still needs to be updated for the new Council members since that time.

Also, for those with an interest in the breakdown of VOTING DISTRICTS within the Wards, I have posted the ward-with-districts maps online (
Ward 1 | Ward 2 | Ward 3 | Ward 4 ).

Note that all this will change over the next few months, with a process that kicks in after the new LEGISLATIVE DISTRICTS MAP is unveiled next Sunday.

Thanks to 'YBA' for the link; let's hope the author updates the maps as the process goes along.

No Problem. Addendum, I realize the map doesn't distinguish which ward is which.

Blue: ward 1
green: ward 2
orange: ward 3
pink: ward 4

I hope this helps.
