Shape Anaheim's Future-Draw Your Council Districts 

A series of meetings to encourage community members to participate in drawing Anaheim's City Council districts are underway. An Advisory Committee of five retired Superior Court judges have volunteered to study suggestions for district maps submitted by community members and listen to comments from across the city.


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


The city's demographer will be present at every meeting to explain the boundary drawing process and help community members present their vision of the six districts that will each elect its own City Council Member in 2016. He will be available one hour prior to the start of each meeting and will stay at the close of each meeting to answer questions and help residents draw and submit their proposals for district maps.


Instructions for drawing City Council boundaries are available online. Maps designed by community members or comments on what should be considered when drawing the boundaries can be mailed to the City Clerk or submitted online.To view additional information and calendar of upcoming meetings visit
