Glendale, CA – The City of Glendale is actively encouraging residents to engage in the City Council district formation process to ensure their voices are heard in creating the boundaries of the future voting districts.
Residents are encouraged to provide input on whether the City should transition to Council districts, draw their own maps, share their district line preferences and provide feedback on draft maps to ensure their neighborhoods are represented. Paper and digital mapping tools, as well as a video tutorial for the digital mapping tool are available on the City’s districting website at MapGlendale.org/Draw-a-Map.
Draft maps submitted by community members and processed by the City’s professional demographer can be accessed and reviewed on the Draft Maps page.

- August 15, 2023 – The City will hold its third public hearing during the regularly scheduled City Council meeting at 6 p.m. The City’s demographer will present the draft maps and public input received by August 5.
