A Google map has been created to show the boundaries of the nine City Council districts. Use the zoom bar on the left side of the map to increase or decrease the size. You also can use the Map, Satellite and Terrain buttons in the upper right corner to change the style of the display.

Note: Do not rely on this map for any legal or binding matters. Do not use it to determine city boundaries. This is simply a tool to help citizens locate their City Council representatives.

What do you like most about living in Huntington?

Growing up in Huntington, there was always a feeling of closeness to the neighbors in the community. Years later, raising a family in the same neighborhood I grew up in, there are still a lot of those same connections being made with families growing. I believe in our communities, and by strengthening family involvement and connectivity, we can instill a love of our city for generations to come. Those connections and memories built are what I love most about Huntington.
