A choice between two maps for councilmember districts will be taken up at the March 8 meeting of the Garden Grove City Council.
At Tuesday’s meeting, the council voted 6-0 – with Councilmember Phat Bui (District 4) absent – to bring back for possible adoption for the 2022 elections either the draft map that basically is the same as the existing map or a new one recently submitted.
The new proposed map was submitted by the Garden Grove Redistricting Committee. Among the changes from the existing map are changes intended to enhance representation for areas with concentrations of mobile home parks and apartment residents, as well as the creation of a Latino majority district and two that would create two Vietnamese majority districts.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, City Manager Scott Stiles announced that the State of the City program would be returning this year, with a tentative date of Wednesday, July 13.
