[ARCHIVED] Palmdale Is Redrawing Its City Council Districts: Residents Encouraged to Make Their Voice Heard

The City of Palmdale is launching its City Council redistricting process with the first of four public hearings scheduled to take place on Tuesday, September 14 at 5:30 p.m. in the Palmdale Council Chamber, located at 38300 Sierra Highway, Suite B. 

Members of the Palmdale community are encouraged to participate in this year’s redistricting process to make sure district lines respect neighborhoods, history, and geographical elements.

The redistricting process occurs every 10 years and uses new U.S. Census data to balance out the population count among each district. Residents of Palmdale have an opportunity to help shape the future of the City by redrawing district boundaries and creating new maps based on population changes. Maps are drawn based on population count, contiguity, public input on communities of interest and more. 

To ensure the redistricting process accurately reflects the best interest of Palmdale’s diverse community, the City Council has appointed an Advisory Redistricting Commission to gather public feedback and provide recommendations on draft maps.  As required by law, the City of Palmdale is holding four public hearings at the City Council Chamber:


  • September 14, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. - First Public Hearing
  • November 3, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. - Second Public Hearing
  • January 2022 (TBA)  at 7:30 p.m.  - Third Public Hearing
  • February, 2022 (TBA) at 7:30 p.m.  - Fourth Public Hearing


The City has also developed an outreach plan that includes the following community workshops:

  • October 12, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. - District 1 Community Workshop, Holiday Inn 38630 5th Street West
  • October 16, 2021 at 1 p.m. - District 4 Community Workshop, Knight High School, 37423 70th Street East
  • October 16, 2021 at 5 p.m. - District 3 Community Workshop, Palmdale Oasis Park Recreation Center, 3850 East Avenue S
  • October 25, 2021 at 6 p.m. - District 2 Community Workshop, Marie Kerr Park Recreation Center, 2723-A West Rancho Vista Blvd.

The scheduled community workshops give residents an opportunity to learn more about mapping tools, ensure their community is fairly represented and connect with others interested in the redistricting process. The public is encouraged to attend and make public comments on the process. Comments may also emailed to up until 24 hours before the scheduled meeting. 


To help share information about redistricting, gather draft maps and collect public feedback, the City has launched a dedicated redistricting website: The website includes background information about redistricting, a schedule outlining public meetings and deadlines, frequently asked questions, resources for drawing maps, and more information on how to get directly involved in the redistricting process. As the process moves forward in the coming months, Palmdale will continue to update the website to include additional information on upcoming meetings and events.
