 Community Meeting Dates

The City of Costa Mesa has entered into a settlement agreement that will put a measure on the November 2016 ballot to change the way voters choose their leadership from the City's current at-large elections to geographically defined district elections. The objective of the District Election Mapping is to ensure compliance with the California Voting Rights Act and ensure minority votes are not diluted. As a valued community member, the City is calling on you to get involved in the process of creating council voting districts.

This page will provide access to all things related to the district based elections mapping process including, but not limited to, notices of all public meetings, public notices, press release, agenda reports, maps and supporting documents.

Should you have any questions, please call the City Clerk's office at (714) 754-5225 or email
