Beginning with the November 2018 election, Lake Forest will elect members of the City Council from individual districts, instead of by city-wide vote. The City Council is asking for your help with this transition! You can help by drawing a map of how you think Lake Forest should be split into districts. You can draw a full city-wide map of proposed districts; propose only one district around your neighborhood; or just share your thoughts on which proposed plan you think the Council should approve. The process also includes multiple public hearings for residents to learn about the district election process and give input to the City Council.
The initial deadline for submitting public maps is Tuesday, September 19th. Then watch for draft maps to be published to the City’s website on September 24th. Join us on October 3rd and November 7th to provide your opinion and input on the proposed maps. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall. The Council is expected to make a decision on the district boundary map by December 5th.
