The Atlanta City Council gave its final stamp of approval to its new districts on Monday.
The map, known as Plan 6, now goes onto Mayor Kasim Reed for approval, and then onto the U.S. Department of Justice.
Buckhead’s Pine Hills community remain in Shook’s district, and Loring Heights remain in District 8 Councilwoman Yolanda Adrean’s.
Both neighborhoods had urged the city council to keep their communities intact during the redistricting process.
In order to account for 2010 census data, each of the city’s 12 districts must have a population of at least 35,000.
Cities, counties and states are required by law to redraw and adjust their electoral boundaries when a new Census is completed, to reflect new population numbers and demographics. A citizen who lived in one city council district may live in another after the boundaries have been redrawn and approved.
Since November, the city council has considered five other maps.
