Updating Ward Boundaries in Chicago

We’ve gotten several feedback submissions from EveryBlock users in Chicago, asking us to update our ward boundaries – especially in light of the upcoming elections.

EveryBlock is up in more cities!

Dec182014 HOUpostcard1

It’s been a whirlwind December for the EveryBlock Team as we announced our newest city members. Last week, we brought EveryBlock back to Boston, Cambridge, and Brookline, while also introducing a new addition—Medford, MA. Mayor Mike McGlynn of Medford hosted a press conference to mark the occasion. Click here for the full announcement.

And earlier this week, we re-launched EveryBlock in Houston, complete with updated neighborhood and super neighborhood boundaries as well as Houston 311 data. Mayor Annise Parker and Councilman Ed Gonzalez helped us celebrate in City Hall. Read the full press release here.

We look forward to working with all of our EveryBlock communities to help drive community awareness, promote public data, and connect people to one another. Here’s to a great 2015!
