ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 30, 2021) — Following a month of community meetings across the city, Anaheim will host its second public hearing on the City Council redistricting process on Tuesday, Oct. 5.
During the public hearing, city staff will provide an update on the redistricting process, present available online public participation tools and share feedback received from residents at the seven community meetings held in September.
The Oct. 5 hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the City Council Chamber, 200 S. Anaheim
Blvd. Anyone is welcome to attend and share public comments.
Anaheim launched the redistricting process in July and the final district map is slated to be finalized in the spring.
Every 10 years, the Census gives us an updated picture of our community. Once the final counts are released, cities engage in the redistricting process.
Anaheim has six City Council districts, each with its own elected representative. Our current districts are based on data from 2010, so this is a chance to update them based on the new numbers.
Residents and businesses are encouraged to get involved in the process by attending community meetings, visiting the redistricting webpage and submitting comments and district maps for consideration.
At the third public hearing on Nov. 2, the Anaheim City Council will review draft maps submitted by residents and those generated by the city’s demographer. The deadline for members of the public to submit maps to be reviewed at this meeting is Oct. 22.
Additional community meetings, with more opportunities to participate and submit maps, will be held in November and December.
