City Invites Applicants for Youth Council

La Cañada Flintridge is accepting applications for two of its board and commissions.
The city invites interested residents interested in serving on the Public Works and Traffic Commission to submit an application to the City Clerk’s Office by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 22. This commission, which typically meets at 6 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month at 6 p.m., is responsible for advising the City Council on the Public Works program for the city, including infrastructure improvements to the city’s streets and roads, maintenance requirements of the city’s roads, parks, trees, planted medians, traffic signals, storm drains as well as other improvements.
The commission develops a five-year Capital Improvement Project Plan annually for submission to the City Council outlining the city’s infrastructure needs for the future. In addition, the Commission reviews public works conditions imposed on development projects, traffic circulation and congestion issues as well as parking restriction needs and authorizes changes consistent with state and local requirements.
Commissioners will work with staff liaison Patrick DeChellis, director of the Public Works Department.
The city also invites local youth to consider serving on the Youth Council and to submit an application to the City Clerk’s Office by 5 p.m. on Monday, May 18. The Youth Council is scheduled to meet on the first Friday of the month at 3:30 p.m.
The purpose of the Youth Council is to provide a forum specifically for the discussion of youth issues and to expose youth to the nature and scope of city government. Duties of all Youth Council members include proposing, developing and recommending programs intended to provide recreational opportunities, skills development, independence and self-acknowledgment and to promote acceptance of youth in all aspects of the community through cooperation with and assisting community agencies and city departments to foster mutual understanding and respect for youth. Youth Council members also recommend to the City Council changes in procedure, policies and legislation for the purposes of improving youth involvement in the community.
The staff liaison to the Youth Council is Christina Nguyen, a management analyst.
