‘One’ District Boundary Map Selected
Advisory Committee set to act on final report, boundary plan for Anaheim City Council
ANAHEIM, Calif. – (Sept. 15, 2015) After months of conducting public meetings, reviewing more than 30 boundary maps and hearing testimony from dozens of residents, the Advisory Committee on Electoral Districts is set to meet and possibly approve a final report that identifies one boundary map for submission to the Anaheim City Council (Map 3).
The tentative plan splits the two city landmarks – the Anaheim Resort and Platinum Triangle – into two districts. It also has one Latino-majority and two plurality-Latino districts. Anaheim residents can see in which district they live or work, as well as find additional background information on the districting process at Anaheim.net/districts.
