Members of the community are encouraged to participate in a public workshop to provide input on the Garden Grove City Council election district map for the 2020 Census redistricting process on Saturday, January 29, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The public workshop will be available via Zoom at ggcity.org/redistricting-join and in-person in the Garden Grove Community Meeting Center A Room, located at 11300 Stanford Avenue.

The City will also host a series of public hearings during the regular City Council meeting on Tuesdays, February 8, February 22, March 8, and March 22 at 7:00 p.m., in the City Council Chamber, at the Garden Grove Community Meeting Center.

Spanish and Vietnamese translators will be available for the public workshop and all the public hearings.

Garden Grove is made up of six districts, each with its own elected representative. The City adopted the voting district map and elections in 2016. Following the public workshop and public hearings, the finalized district map will help create and define the six Garden Grove City Council districts which will impact how residents elect their City Council members for the next 10 years.
