Finman proposes ‘Boise County North’ congressional district plan

GOP redistricting Commissioner Lorna Finman has proposed a new congressional redistricting plan, plan C-36. It's similar to the earlier GOP plan, but makes some shifts in the line; she called it the “Boise County North” plan. “It moves precincts out of the south and kind of moves things north,” she explained. This plan has a population difference between the two districts of just one person. All of Boise County and all of Garden City would move to District 2. The dividing line between the two districts in Ada County, which would be the only county split, would follow Five Mile Road, Amity Road, Gowen Road and Pleasant Valley Road. Finman said it's a proposal that could perhaps, with a little more “tweaking,” be brought to a zero population deviation between the two districts.
