The City Council is asking for your help planning our City’s change to by-district Council elections. Half Moon Bay, like over 90 cities and 165 school districts across the state, is making a change in how voters elect the City Council.
Beginning in 2020, City Council members will be elected district by district, instead of the current at-large citywide elections in which all voters have the ability to vote for all City Council seats.
We need your help to make this change!
The primary goal when drawing Council election districts is to draw lines that keep neighborhoods together. So the Council wants to know: what do you consider the boundaries of your neighborhood? You can share your specific neighborhood thoughts, or draw a map yourself for the Council and your fellow residents to consider.
September 4 Update: on a 4-0 vote, the City Council introduced the ordinance to adopt map 106b. The ordinance is scheduled to return to the Council for a final “second reading” on September 18th.
More information will be posted to this page as the process moves forward.
Tuesday, September 18
Council has second reading and final adoption of Ordinance.
