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.
