Provide Your Input With the Online Mapping Tool Tell the Chair of the House State Government Committee about the boundaries of your community of interest or comment on the current congressional districts (as drawn by the state Supreme Court in 2018) with our online mapping tool. Communities of interest are used to help stakeholders understand local interests in preserving areas within a district. A community of interest can be a subdivision, a city, a neighborhood or any geographic area defined and submitted for consideration. Everyone in Pennsylvania should have an opportunity to contribute. Duplicate submissions, i.e., submission of the same information by the same individual multiple times, will not be considered. Online Mapping Tool There are two ways for you to use our online mapping tool: Define Your Community of Interest Draw your community of interest boundaries, including streets, neighborhoods and important hubs that make your community unique. Consider landmarks, cultural districts, industries and employers, and unofficial communities (i.e. Happy Valley, coal country, Upper Dauphin, the Mon Valley, the Shale Belt). Not sure where to start? Think about where you shop, go to school, play sports, access services, or attend church. By identifying your community of interest, you help us keep like-minded communities together so you can be fairly and well represented in Washington, D.C. Comment on the Current Map The Legislature is still waiting on its final data from the U.S. Census Bureau, but we already know because of population loss Pennsylvania is going to lose one seat, going from 18 to 17 congressional districts. Understanding this will require significant changes to Pennsylvania’s districts, we are still interested in hearing your thoughts on the current map, which was created by the Supreme Court in 2018 without any public input. Coming Soon Once Pennsylvania is in receipt of official data from the U.S. Census Bureau, residents of Pennsylvania will have the opportunity to submit complete statewide maps.
