Updating Ward Boundaries to Reflect Existing Practice (Meetinghouse Locator Misinformation)

Postby guddatj » Sun Jun 12, 2016 7:39 am

The LDS Meetinghouse Locator is assigning a specific set of streets to one ward when they should be assigned to a different ward in the same stake. Both wards have been in existence for several years. We are not sure how long the streets have been assigned to the wrong ward, but it seems like a recent phenomenon.

How do I go about reassigning these streets to the correct ward in the same stake?

You might use the Suggest an Edit link at Maps. You might send a note through Feedback.

If neither of those work, you will probably have to have the stake president or clerk contact the Boundary Committee to look into it.

Does the map show the boundary in the correct location for that street? Or are the boundaries actually showing different than you expect?

We went through a boundary change a couple of years ago and the map did not match the information provided by the Stake to the ward members when the ward was split. It took them some months in working with SLC to get the boundary corrected, but that finally happened. I don't think this can be fixed from the ward level other than reporting it as stated above.

While this didn't seem to be a problem before, we looked at the boundaries and they are drawn wrong which is putting families in a ward they shouldn't be in and, therefore, creating the wrong information in the meeting house locator for these three particular streets. It seems funny that we didn't notice this before as both wards have been in existence for several years. Hard to believe the boundaries could have mysteriously changed on their own.

If the current boundaries are different than what you actually submitted for the change then you can likely just get a boundary correction processed. Otherwise you will need to submit a new boundary proposal.

Or accept what the map shows as correct. ;)
