The Diamond Bar City Council is in the process of transitioning its elections from at-large voting, where voters citywide elect all five council members, to a district- based system, where voters in each district elect only one council member who must also live in that district.Residents are encouraged to attend the March 15 public hearing to learn about the City's change to by-district elections, ask questions about the process, provide feedback to help define districts and discover how to submit draft maps for consideration.
New district lines in Diamond Bar will remain in place for the next decade until a new U.S. Census is completed. Pursuant to California Elections Code Section 10010, in order to avoid being sued, the City needs to complete the process of transitioning from at-large to by-district elections by early May 2022.
Meetings take place telephonically and in-person at City Hall-Windmill Room located at 21810 Copley Drive. See the first page of the meeting agenda for in-person and online participation and public comment submission details at www.diamondbarca.gov/agendas.
