BACKGROUND

May 2016: City contracts with National Demographics Corporation (NDC) to facilitate the transition from an at-large election system to a by-district election system in response to alleged California Voting Rights Act violation claims and threat of litigation received from two separate law firms in late 2015 and 2016.

March 7, 2017 and March 21, 2017: the City Council held two public hearings in which the public was invited to participate and provide input regarding the composition of districts.

April 18, 2017 and May 2, 2017: The City Council considers proposed district maps and sequence of elections submitted by the public.
