Petaluma is moving to a district election model to ensure that voices from all corners of our community are heard. This is a significant change in how Petalumans will vote for city council representation — and we need your input to shape the new districts. All community input, regardless of immigration status or voting eligibility, continues to be welcomed and encouraged.
At Public Hearing #3 on January 31, City Council reviewed the three initial draft plans provided by the third party demographers, Redistricting Partners, as well as the draft maps provided by the public and all other community input. City Council identified Draft Plan A as being the preferred draft of the options provided and gave direction for Draft Plan A, Version 2 which can be viewed below.
As you will see, the draft map shows Petaluma mapped into six districts of nearly equal population. In our new district election model, residents from each district will vote for one fellow resident to represent them on City Council. The Mayor will continue to be selected with the at-large election system.
To provide public testimony on the draft map or a map you submitted, please attend our upcoming District Elections Public Hearing #4 (City Council Meeting) which will be Monday, February 14 at 6pm. Zoom link will be posted on the District Elections webpage as it approaches.
