web pr 2022

ANAHEIM, Calif. (April 14, 2022) — Anaheim's new City Council districts are in place following City Council approval and months of public input and discussion.

The new districts are based on population shifts from the 2020 Census as well as public input on communities of interest.  

Districts 2, 3, 4, and 5, covering our city from Magnolia Avenue to Santa Ana River, saw changes.  

There were no changes to District 1 in west Anaheim and District 6 in east Anaheim.

District 2, which covers part of west Anaheim from Magnolia to Euclid Street, expands to the south below Cerritos Avenue and to the east to Ninth Street to include the area around Stoddard Park. 

District 3, covering downtown Anaheim, sees a portion of the district expand to the west from Euclid to Brookhurst Street, encompassing the neighborhoods above La Palma Avenue around and including John Marshall Park.

District 4, which includes The Anaheim Resort and nearby neighborhoods, expands to the east to include some of the newer Platinum Triangle apartment communities and to the north to include neighborhoods around and including Ross Park. 

The City Council approved a new district map on March 1 and completed a second reading of the approval on March 15. The new districts are effective April 14.

Anaheim began the redistricting process in July 2021 and has hosted dozens of community meetings and public hearings in the past nine months. Anaheim residents also submitted suggested district maps and comments on map proposals via email and online at AnaheimRedistricting.org.

Anaheim first adopted a district-based election system in 2016, with districts based on the 2010 Census. The city must complete a redistricting process every 10 years.

With Anaheim having adopted districts fairly recently, the changes seen in this update did not result in extensive changes.
