As a result, beginning with the November 2016 election, City Council members other than the Mayor must live in and be nominated and elected from a geographic district, only by voters of that district; and WHEREAS, at the November 4, 2014 election the voters of the City of Anaheim approved Measure M, which amended the City Charter to require that, commencing with the November 2016 general municipal election, the size of the Council increase from four members to six members, plus a Mayor. Neither Measure L nor Measure M changed the method of electing the Mayor of Anaheim; the Mayor continues to be elected city-wide; and WHEREAS, on April 7, 2015, the City Council adopted City Council Resolution No. 2015-147, which created the Advisory Committee on Electoral Districts, composed of five retired judges that served on the Orange County Superior Court ("Committee"); one of the judges selected for the Committee is an Anaheim resident and the remaining four judges were selected by random draw to serve on the Committee; and WHEREAS, the City of Anaheim, the Anaheim City Council and the Committee actively sought participation from the City's voters, residents, community groups, businesses and other stakeholders in undertaking a process to create City Council district maps for use commencing with the November 2016 election. In furtherance of encouraging community participation, the City engaged in a robust outreach program that included: use of public service announcements transmitted by local television, cable, YouTube and print media outlets (in both English and Spanish); posting and publication of meeting agendas (English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese and Korean); a dedicated City webpage with information regarding the districting process (with capability to be translated into multiple languages); community meetings and Committee meetings (with Spanish interpretation services provided at each meeting and other languages, upon request); multi-lingual flyers placed at all city libraries, community centers and city public counters as well as availability for distribution by community members, groups, and field staff; informational mailings in City utility bills and various City publications/newsletters; press releases; and communications on the City's social media outlets.

Committee meetings were held throughout the City at City Hall, the Brookhurst Community Center, the East Anaheim Community Center, the Ponderosa Resource Family Center, Western High School and Loara High School in order to encourage community -wide participation.

Additionally, City staff presented information on the districting process to the four neighborhood councils in the month of July. A total of 5 draft sample map plans were prepared. by the demographic consultant retained by the City and a total of 32 maps were submitted by members of the public for community input and the Committee's consideration.
