At last week’s meeting, the City Council decided to form a youth advisory council in College Park.

In July 2019, the City of College Park received a letter from the Youth Advisory Committee in Greenbelt, MD requesting that the City explore the process in establishing a Youth Advisory Committee and the benefits of having such a committee in a municipality.

The discussion also included topics such as typical costs associated with youth advisory committees, and composition of the committee including common selection mechanisms.

At the meeting, the Council asked the current “Committee on Committee” to work on these details about the new committee and reported back to the Council in the future.
