Garden Grove

Youth Action on council agenda

THE CREATION of a Youth Action Committee composed of local high school students is on Tuesday’s agenda of the Garden Grove City Council (Shutterstock).

Calling … maybe … teenagers in Garden Grove ready to lead.

On the agenda for Tuesday night’s meeting of the city council is an item on the possibility of creating a Youth Action Committee to “engage and work” with city leaders.

The city’s community services staff has studied, at the direction of the council, how 12 other cities handle the issue of getting organized input and participation from high school-age residents. The most popular are youth action committees who help organize teen-related events and service projects.

Such a committee could operate with guidance from city staff and volunteers. In past years, Garden Grove had a Youth Commission, but it was disbanded from a lack of interest and responsibility.

Also on the agenda are two proposed ordinances, one related to the regulation of accessory and junior accessory dwelling units, and the other about amending the density bonus and other incentives for affordable housing in residential and mixed use zones.

The council meeting is scheduled to meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.

    CA Youth Commissions and Councils
    What is a Youth Commission?
    A youth commission is a body of local young people, between the ages of 12 and 24, who offer guidance to cities, counties, and special districts on issues affecting youth. Youth commissions, also referred to as committees, councils, task forces, or advisory boards, can make recommendations to a city council or board of supervisors as well as create their own youth master plans. Commissioners are encouraged to initiate educational campaigns, organize conferences, and plan community events around youth issues (i.e. education, public safety, community engagement).
    Being a member of a youth commission allows for professional development, encouraging young people to pursue a career in the public sector and participate in local civic activities. They are a resource that provides youth a voice in the political process and community input for local government. When a city, county, or special district creates a youth commission, they are investing in a new generation of public employees and change agents.
    Given changes locally, this information is not always up-to-date.
