City Council to Consider Draft District Maps as Fremont Transitions to District-based Elections

US Flag

On March 21, 2017, the City of Fremont adopted a resolution of intention to transition from an at-large to a district-based councilmember election system with six districts and a Mayor at-large for a seven member Council. The City has already held four of the five required public hearings where the Fremont City Council and community provided input on the criteria to guide the creation of the district boundaries.

Using input received thus far, draft district maps have been drawn. The public is encouraged to provide further input regarding the proposed district boundaries and the potential sequence of elections. Amended maps will be published by May 30, seven days prior to the fifth public hearing on June 6, and can be viewed on our website.

The fifth public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, June 6, 2017. After reviewing the proposed maps, the City Council will select one and introduce an ordinance to establish district-based elections. At the sixth and final public hearing on Tuesday, June 13, 2017, the Fremont City Council will vote to adopt an ordinance. The remaining public hearings will be held at City Hall, located at 3300 Capitol Ave., Building A in the Council Chambers at 7 p.m.

For more information and to view the draft district maps, visit our district elections webpage. Community members are also invited and encouraged to share input, comments, and feedback by email. Comments received will be shared with the Fremont City Council as part of the public feedback at the hearings.
