REDLANDS, Calif. — For the past few weeks, Community Forward Redlands has been focused on providing hyper-local election coverage. First, we shared tools to help locate City Council and US Congressional districts through interactive street-level maps. Then we published the “In Their Own Words” City Council and School Board candidate profile series through substack and social channels. Finally, a deep dive article into both Measures F and J explains how the initiatives came about and what they could mean for development in Redlands.
