A new City Council redistricting proposal incorporates all of Atwater Village within one council district, Council District 13 (CD13/Eric Garcetti).
The redistricting proposal integrates Atwater's industrial area north of Goodwin and the equestrian district, both currently in Council District 4, into Council District 13. Atwater's residential areas and three main commercial corridors (Fletcher Dr and Los Feliz & Glendale Blvd's) will remain in Council District 13.
Atwater’s chamber of commerce, resident’s association and neighborhood council actively lobbied the Redistricting Commission to have the whole community placed within one council district, preferably in CD13. Civic leaders argued against having the community divided among more then one council district. They cited concerns about the confusion and lack of accountability often created by having one community represented by more then one elected official.
