The Escondido Independent Districting Commission has approved its final map of City Council districts and will send it to the City Council for review and possible approval. The Commission met November 24 to adjust district boundaries drawn for the preliminary map created in late October. The adjustments reflected comments at three hearings in late November in which the public reacted to a preliminary version.
The changes were minor, and mostly affected the central district #1. It boundaries are (generally) Centre City Parkway to the west, Citrus to the east, El Norte Parkway to the north and the Escondido Creek channel to the south. A section of land including Escondido City Hall and the Center for the Arts was moved from District 1 into District 2 (that includes the northern part of the city).
