The Ojai City Council unanimously approved Tuesday a new map that shifts the boundaries of its four council districts.

The determination is section of a redistricting method getting place in towns across the county and region.

District 1, which is the downtown core of the city represented by Councilmember Ryan Blatz, will go through a significant change with its new boundaries consisting of Grand Avenue to the north, Ojai Avenue to the south, North Blanche Street to the west and Shady Lane to the east.

Beforehand, the district was bounded by Palomar and Foothill streets to the north, Ojai Avenue to the south, St. Thomas Travel/Montana Highway on the west and Sign Street to the east. Changes to the district boundaries signify that residents may well vote for a distinct council district in the forthcoming election.
