The Arcadia City Council is looking for public input on the redistricting of City Council districts. They will hold a series of public hearings to best understand Arcadia’s communities of interest.
At the public hearings, Arcadia residents will also be given the opportunity to help shape the future of City Council Districts. The City Council will evaluate city maps drawn and submitted with public input and professional demographers.
Every 10 years the United States issues a census to count the population. When the United States Census is completed, the City Council District Map is realigned to reflect Arcadia’s current population.
The Arcadia City Council will hold its first public hearing on Aug. 17, 2021 to provide an overview of the redistricting process and legal requirements. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting to learn more about the redistricting process. Attending this meeting will also help residents understand their impact on helping shape the city’s new districts.
Public meetings will be conducted throughout the year and the public is welcome to comment on issues discussed during meetings.
