An ordinance establishing and implementing By-District Elections which replaces the previous At-Large Election process was approved and adopted by the Glendora City Council at the October 10, 2017 meeting. The new City Council districts will become effective with the next regular municipal election, currently scheduled for March 2019. The boundaries are the result of input by the public during five public hearings and an open time period in which residents could submit possible boundary maps for consideration and discussion. Ultimately, 17 proposed maps were submitted and discussed at an August 29, 2017 Special meeting.
The adopted boundaries are designed to best capture the arching themes presented by the public – that the districts comply with applicable laws; they depict the overall community points of interest in each one – balance the incorporation of the foothills down to the Arrow Highway within each of the five districts as possible; and emphasize a “community” approach to governance over a geographic area focus.
Below is a link to the new boundaries and the most current demographic information on each district and overall community as reported by the 2010 census and other reported data collected by the State of California.
*The City of Glendora will begin working with the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters to develop an informational campaign to notify voters which Districts they belong to.
