  1. Staff note that the plan’s author provided the following comments: “As a note, my intent in creating the districts was to meet the population guidelines while attempting to create districts of similar communities regardless of county boundaries. Florida’a county boundaries serve a legal purpose. However they were created when Florida became a state in the 19th century. As we face the redistricting challenge of 2011 during the 21st century I feel it will be important that district boundaries be created to abide by the letter of the law while at the same time creating legislative districts that meet the needs of communities the legislators are meant to serve. Particularly in central Florida we have had rather large communities develop that span sometimes two and even more county boundaries. Within the population rules of redistricting I have attempted to create districts that preserve these communities intact so that thy may be represented by a single representative. Likewise for sets of communities having similar characteristics. Rural communities have been grouped into rural districts.
    Metropolitan communities into Metro districts and coastal communities into coastal districts.”

    Thanks for taking the time and effort to create this map. I don’t think Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties’ representation look well represented, especially your coastal district.
