General Information and Map

In the November 2010 election, voters approved a referendum (28,236 voted 'yes' and 14,593 voted 'no') requiring that the City divide into districts beginning with the 2015 municipal election. When this happens, five council members would serve these districts with three additional council members elected at-large.

At the August 16, 2011 City Council meeting, Council directed a team of interdepartmental City staff to develop a map showing the proposed districts. To determine appropriate boundaries, the team utilized census population data as well as the City’s subdivision map and County precinct boundaries.

The proposed map depicts five districts that are close to equal population, maintain the integrity of subdivisions and respect geographic boundaries such as major arterial roads.

The Naperville Proposed Districts map is available at gis.naperville.il.us/mashups/districts. A mobile friendlier version of the map is available at bit.ly/naperpdm.

A series of frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the district map and the process used to develop the districts is available in the City's Citizen Support Center.


Open Houses 

The City will host a series of six open houses to discuss the proposed Naperville districts map scheduled to commence this spring. Each of the first five open houses will be held within their respective districts with the sixth and final open to residents of all five districts.

The schedule is below:

  • District 1: Tuesday, March 13, 6:30-8 p.m.
    Public Works Service Center, 180 Fort Hill Drive
  • District 2: Tuesday, April 10, 6:30-8 p.m.
