I just got a letter in the mail from the City of Detroit Department of Elections stating that I have a new polling location and election day is on April 7, 2009. It gives no other details except for saying that I received a Citizen's District Coucil Election Notice on February 23, 2009 to "inform me of my polling location." I don't remember receiving such a letter.
The question is, what are we voting for on April 7, 2009 and has anyone elses polling location recently changed?

You live in a neighborhood that has a Citizen’s District Council.
Quoted from the election notice that you may not have received, CDC’s “represent the viewpoint of the community in urban renewal projects, assist in planning and carrying out the community’s concerns about housing and related activities, and act as the link between the community and city agencies.”
CDC’s have an election once a year. I’m guessing some of the notices they sent out for this year’s election were missing the polling place, so they sent a second notice.

Citizen's District Councils
Citizen's District Councils are advisory councils mandated by law to provide citizen participation in planning and development issues for City-designated redevelopment and district areas.
The Neighborhood Support Services Division staff provides the following services for CDCs:
* contract preparation for CDCs that have been allocated administrative funds through the CDBG program
* administrative support for unfunded CDCs
* technical assistance to facilitate citizen participation.
Sounds like a good base for city districts/wards, huh?

They are your neighborhood folks. Once the City
quit funding the CDC's most of them closed up, but
if you have an active neighborhood, like block clubs,or resident's councils, those are the names that should be written in, just in case funding ever does become available.
