City Councillors and Ward Information
The wards of a city are more than just its political map or blocks of votes. They provide an outline of the citys extended neighbourhoods and in some cases of its geopolitical interest groups. They can also be a reflection of the heritage of a city and particularly of its historical evolution from wilderness to urban sophistication. A particular ward might be separated from its neighbours by a geographical feature (like a river or freeway) or perhaps by the boundaries that once defined the citys once independent founding communities. It is important to note that ward boundaries are also affected by the distribution of the citys population. Occasionally it is necessary to adjust the boundaries as population shifts within the community. These adjustments are made to ensure that the citys citizens receive equal representation around the Council table.
