ANAHEIM, CA - (May 20, 2015) - During the first organizational meeting to gather input on drawing Anaheim’s City Council voting boundaries, the Advisory Committee set the first series of community meeting dates.

An Advisory Committee of five retired Superior Court judges, chaired by the Hon. Edward J. Wallin (Ret.), have volunteered to listen to suggestions for the six district boundaries and make recommendations to the City Council.

The Committee set dates for the first series of meetings. Community meetings will be conducted in Council Chambers on Wednesday, May 27, Tuesday, June 9, and Wednesday, July 1, at 6:30 p.m. Meetings on Thursday, June 4 and Wednesday, July 8, also at 6:30 p.m., will be held at community locations to make it easier for residents to attend. Those locations will be announced later. Community meetings will also be held in August and September to gather final comments.

The city’s demographer will explain the process for shaping Anaheim’s six City Council districts and, before and after each meeting, he will help residents draw their own proposals for district maps. Instructions for drawing City Council boundaries are also at www.anaheim.net/districts.

Using input from the meetings, the Advisory Committee will recommend the boundaries to the City Council. The Council will hold public hearings and make the final decision on the shape of the districts by the end of 2015.

This is the first time in the more than 150-years of Anaheim’s history that City Council elections will be conducted by districts. Residents are encouraged to take this important opportunity to be part of the conversation and help shape Anaheim’s future.
