Draw Your Own Maps

A customized New York City-version of DistrictR, an online mapping tool, allows New Yorkers to draw their own City Council Districts -- and submit their drawings to the Commission as their public testimony.

The public can submit their DistrictR maps to the Commission by simply hitting “Save” on DistrictR and then hitting “Share To Gallery.”  

The public can also copy their map URL link, which appears once the “Save” button is clicked, and email the map URL link along with written testimony describing their map to the Commission at PublicTestimony@redistricting.nyc.gov
