New City Council district maps, if approved, will split Glendale in two, prompting push back from local Councilman Robert Holden and the Glendale Civic Association, who argue it will disenfranchise residents in the area. 

New districts must be redrawn every 10 years after a census is taken. The new map is supposed to more accurately represent the changing demographics and population in the city, which increased from 8.2 million people in 2010 to 8.8 million people in 2020.
