2020 Census PL 94.171 Data
I have no idea how I feel about this map because I don't see data about non-partisan fairness. I don't think it in any way appears to have been drawn based on Communities of Interest so I don't have a clue what criteria were considered other than equal numbers in each district.

Thank you for keeping Troy unified.
Not impressed. The irregularly shaped districts presented so far look like they could be used for an ad to create a redistricting commission. Keep counties and communities together and create orderly and compact districts.
How can we download these maps. Downloadable shape files are missing components. Please provide guidance.
Thank you for keeping the city of Troy redistricted together. This makes sense, as we are a diverse and close knit community. I am very pleased with this map
I'm a former mayor of the City of Albion. Albion historically has been in an awkward space in terms of political geography (http://www.albionmich.com/history/histor_notebook/950108.shtml). But separating Albion from Battle Creek in a state house district would do serious harm to the political power of Albion’s racial minorities. Albion is approximately 30% Black or African American. Severing Albion’s political ties with Battle Creek would do major damage to this community of interest of Great Migration-era Black family transplants. FIRST, most important is to keep Albion and Battle Creek in the same state house district—a district that could also possibly include the City of Marshall because Albion and Marshall now share the same school district after a historic school district annexation in 2016. SECOND, as I mentioned in another comment on the senate map, Albion, rather than Vicksburg or Schoolcraft, should be included with the proposed 3rd senate district (i.e. the I-94 corridor with Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, and Marshall). Albion's demographic mix could make possible the election of a person of color eventually if the city is included with Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, which also have sizable populations of racial minorities.
Splitting Livonia up into pizza slices doesn't make any sense. The same goes for Redford. Stacking these districts like pancakes looks like gerrymandering in another form.
While I get the intent of not wanting to racially pack districts near Detroit, I would not split Redford Township into 4 separate districts. The township is better off being left whole and there is a way to include both precincts in NW Detroit and precincts in Livonia to have it remain racially balanced.
Greetings. The small triangle of Royal Oak boarding Beverly Hills is called "The Beverly Hills neighborhood of Royal Oak." It makes sense to include it in District 21. That should make it possible for you to include more or all Clawson in 23.
This is the part of Grosse Pointe Shores that was cut off from the rest of Grosse Pointe. It is a small population to shift if the commission were so inclined.
Thank you for mostly keeping the Grosse Pointes together. Obviously, this is strong VRA opportunity to elect district. However, unlike 10 years ago, the Grosse Pointes are mostly together, which will at-least make us relevant to our state representative. This will hopefully allow us to advocate for stewardship of our lake and lakefront infrastructure issues. Please note that the Commission did split Grosse Pointe Shores into two districts. Also, I would very much have liked to have Harper Woods with the Grosse Pointes as the communities share many services and share a school system. However, given what happened to us 10 years ago, I will take the map as drawn and thank the Commission for it.
