Next Public Hearing on Transition to By-District Election System Set for April 17, 2023

The Pleasant Hill Community is invited to provide input at the next planning session regarding the City's proposed transition to district-based elections. 

Following action taken by the City Council at its March 6, 2023 meeting, the City of Pleasant Hill began the public hearing process for moving to district-based elections for City Council seats on March 20, 2023.  The third public hearing will be held at 7:00 p.m. on April 17, 2023.

Following the April 17th public hearing, the City will have a demographer prepare an electoral division map, which will then be published. Once the map is published, the City anticipates holding a public hearing on May 1st and May 6th to discuss and garner feedback on the draft map. 

The City Council will then conduct a final public meeting and will take steps to adopt an Ordinance transitioning the City from an at-large to a by-district method of electing Members of the City Council, approving the establishment of electoral division map boundaries, and approving the sequence of future Council elections.     

All public hearings will be conducted in the City Council Chamber, located at 100 Gregory Lane, Pleasant Hill, California, 94523.
