Often referred to as the “Central District” in official city literature due to its relation to the other three districts, District 4 is more aptly described as the beating heart of our city. It is a dynamic and diverse area that is home to thriving commerce and communities.
Composed primarily of late 20th and early 21st century residential developments including several senior communities, District 4 also boasts our city’s primary industrial zone. Landmarks of the district include a developing public park and open space at El Corazon, Heritage Park Village & Museum, Mission San Luis Rey and Martin Luther King Jr. Park.
About District Elections
On May 3, 2017, pursuant to the California Voting Rights Act of 2001, the City of Oceanside came into compliance with state law by adopting “by-district” elections. This means that each area of the city will have a representative who can focus on the needs of their neighbors while acting to benefit the city as a whole. Oceanside’s Mayor is still chosen “at-large” by a vote of all registered residents.
In 2018 Oceanside voters elected Councilmembers to Districts 1 and 2. District 3 and 4 are up for election in 2020, but District 4 is the only district which is not currently represented in City Council.
