What was the process for creating voting districts?

The City conducted a number of meetings and public hearings to gather community input from residents. Public participation is always strongly encouraged for such a transition. Draft maps were drawn by a demographer based on community input.

At the end of the process, after all public input was received and considered, the City Council selected a final map (PDF) and adopted an ordinance (PDF) establishing a by-district election system.
