CITY OF SANTA ANA IS SET TO CONSIDER CHANGING WARD BOUNDARIES
SANTA ANA, CA (November 15, 2011) – The City of Santa Ana is proposing to change the City’s Ward boundaries. A public hearing has been set for December 5, 2011, at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber, located at 22 Civic Center Plaza, in which testimony will be received and considered by the City Council.
Santa Ana Charter, Section 101.2 – Requires that Ward boundaries have equal population based on the decennial Federalcensus. The data reviewed was generated by the United States Census Bureau as a result of the 2010 Census. In 1992, the City Council made a similar decision to change the boundaries after Census data was received, which identified significant population changesby Ward. Similarly, the 2010 Census data has identified a shift in boundary population, which triggers the City to consider changing the current Ward boundaries.
