CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council has decided upon a new district map after weeks of deliberation and public hearings.

The 'Lavander' map shows its seven districts throughout the city of Chico.

One change to be made to the map is the re-numbering of two districts. One will become four and four will become one.

Under state law, odd and even districts are supposed to be voted on at the same time. Meaning, in 2020, there will be four seats up for re-election.

Sean Morgan who is supposed to be running for re-election this year will not be allowed to run again. This leaves his district, District 4, unrepresented for two years.

"My seat, which will be in District 1, is not up in 2020. So I will normally be up for re-election in 2020, now I can't run," said Councilmember Morgan. "They know they can't beat me, that's what they just did."

The 'Lavander' map will represent the city's districts until the 2020 census when districts will be redrawn.
