City of Oceanside Population Viewer

On May 3, 2017, the Oceanside City Council adopted a resolution to begin the process to transition to district elections. Once implemented, this means that those who run for City Council will need to live in the district where they seek election. The Mayor's seat will continue to be elected at-large. Five community meetings were held in May 2017 to learn about the process, provide input and work together to develop draft maps. In addition, the City Council held four public hearings to take comment on the potential composition of the council districts.  On June 21, 2017, the City Council voted 4-0 to direct staff to bring forward the "Communities of Interest Map" for final approval.   At the City Council meeting on July 25, 2017, the Council introduced an Ordinance establishing by-district elections for City Council offices and approved an election calendar for the newly created Council Districts.  On August 1, 2017, the City Council voted to adopt the ordinance.  For more information, visit the City Clerk’s District Elections page at:

City of Oceanside Lot Split Map Viewer

This viewer has been prepared as a tool for researching Lot Split Maps in the City of Oceanside. City of Oceanside Subdivision Ordinance No. 946, Article V, Section 500 regulated the subdivision of one or more lots into four or fewer lots from October 10, 1956 until March 4, 1972. Subdivision Map Act Section 66412.6(a) states;

(a) For purposes of this division or of a local ordinance enacted pursuant thereto, any parcel created prior to March 4, 1972, shall be conclusively presumed to have been lawfully created if the parcel resulted from a division of land in which fewer than five parcels were created and if at the time of the creation of the parcel, there was no local ordinance in effect which regulated divisions of land creating fewer than five parcels.

All parcels that were not created by a recorded subdivision map in the City of Oceanside from October 10, 1956 through March 4, 1972 were required to be created through the Lot Split process set forth in City of Oceanside Subdivision Ordinance No. 946. Any parcel that was created through this process is deemed to have been lawfully created per the Subdivision Map Act.
