The City of Carpinteria has begun the process of transitioning from at-large elections to district elections. By the November 2022 election, there will be five districts in Carpinteria, each of which will have one elected council member. In order to create election districts that are balanced in size and that protect the interest of the communities within those districts, the City is seeking input from the public. A series of meetings will be held this month to inform the public about the districting process and collect feedback. Meetings will be held on Monday, Sept. 20 at 5:30 p.m.; Wednesday, Sept. 22 at noon; and Sunday, Sept. 26 at 2 p.m. Participants can attend in person at City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Ave., or through video conferencing. Meeting details and additional ways to learn more and participate in drafting districts will be available at www.drawcarpinteria.com.
