The Escondido City Council is changing how its members are elected. Starting next year, four Council members will be elected from individual districts. This Fall the Escondido Independent Districting Commission will decide where these four districts will be located. The Commission needs to hear from you about your neighborhood and communities of interests and where they are located to help the Commission draw districts for the 2014 November election.
You can tell the Commission about your community at a public hearing. Translation services will be available at the hearings. The following are the remaining hearings:
- Saturday, October 19 – 9 am at Mission Middle School, 939 E. Mission Ave.
- Thursday, October 24 – 6 pm at Felicita Elementary School, 737 W. 13th Ave.
