City Council Meetings

The City Council meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month in the Council Chamber, 22 Civic Center Plaza, Santa Ana.

COVID-19 Measures: The City of Santa Ana resumed in-person public commentary during Council meetings as of July 7, 2020. As we slowly begin to lift restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public is advised of the following:

Public comments will be held during the beginning of the meeting for ALL comments on agenda and non-agenda items, except for public hearings. Comments for public hearings will take place after the hearing is opened. This is being done to respect the time constraints of resident
s who cannot stay late into the evening to comment on items that they feel strongly about.

Individuals who would like to comment on an agenda item or make a general comment regarding a topic not in the meeting’s agenda may do so by filling out a comment card with staff prior to this time segment in the meeting and entering the Chamber when instructed.

The public is advised that the general seating area within the Chamber will NOT be made available in order to maintain social distancing and reduce the possibility of COVID-19 transmission. Seating with social distancing will be available outside the Council Chamber for members of the public to await their turn to speak.

All City employees and members of the public that attend public meetings MUST wear a mask or face covering and maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from persons who are not members of the same household when inside the Chamber. Individuals who do not want to wear a mask or face covering or attend in person are invited to provide their comments via email instead to Additional safety measures, such as hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes, will be made available.

Members of the public who have tested positive for COVID-19, are displaying symptoms of the illness, or are immunocompromised and at a higher risk if exposed SHOULD NOT attend City Council meetings in person. If you are not sure if this applies to you, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website:

The City of Santa Ana thanks residents for their ongoing patience and flexibility as we continue to balance safety and public participation.
