The City of Irvine is pursuing its first City Council district formation process, and you can take part in the planning. Join the City of Irvine this Wednesday, April 26 at 6 p.m. for a virtual community workshop being held via Zoom. Learn about the districting process and discover tools available to draw maps and ensure your neighborhood is fairly represented.
All City of Irvine registered voters currently vote for the Mayor and all four City Councilmembers. Upon completion of the districting process, the City of Irvine would have six separate voting districts. Beginning in 2024, each voter would vote for the Mayor and one Councilmember to represent the district they live in.
Residents can get involved by attending public hearings and community workshops, sharing their thoughts on communities that should be kept together in a single district, submitting a map of proposed district lines, and eventually providing feedback on other draft maps.
In addition to the virtual workshop April 26, several community workshops and public hearings are scheduled to give residents an opportunity to learn more about the tools available to draw maps, ensure their community is fairly represented, and connect with others engaged in the district formation process.
