Council District Mapping Background Information
The City of Anaheim adopted Ordinance No. 6280 at the July 23, 2013 City Council meeting establishing residency districts for City Council Members and candidates for Council. This ordinance requires that the City Council create these districts and adopt maps by March 1, 2014 so that the districts can be used at the November 2014 general election. Maps will be drawn for the current 4 Council seats and for a potential 6 Council seats because a ballot measure has been placed on the June 2014 ballot asking voters if they wish to increase the size of the Council to 6 plus the separately elected Mayor. The community meetings will provide an overview of how to become involved by submitting a map of proposed districts or by submitting comments regarding communities of interest.
