After a nine-month community engagement process, the City of Fremont has completed its redistricting process, with the Fremont City Council adopting a new City Council district map on April 5, 2022. Redistricting is a once-in-a-decade process of redrawing district lines based on Census data. In Fremont, the redistricting process is used to review City Council district boundaries. The new City Council district map is now effective and will be implemented for the November 2022 election. The City will be promptly updating its District Locator Tool for residents to view their new district boundaries.
The new Council District Map hosts minor changes to Districts 2, 3, 4, and 6, while no changes were made to district boundary lines of Districts 1 and 5. Councilmembers will continue to serve under the same election cycle with Council Districts 2, 3, and 4 being up for election in November 2022, while Districts 1, 5, and 6 are up for election in 2024.
The City of Fremont began its redistricting process in July 2021, and hosted a series of five public hearings, community workshops, and public outreach for input on important attributes about Fremont’s communities of interests and neighborhoods in order to best redraw the City’s Council District Map to be balanced in population and reflect equitable opportunities for Fremont residents. The City Council received 15 maps from the public and three maps from the City’s demographer consultant for review.
