The youth council will define goals for the next two years and work with Nowakowski and city staff to achieve them. The group will consist of 90 local youth members, which is 15 youth from each of the six Village Planning Committees within the district, including: Central City, Laveen, South Mountain, Maryvale, Estrella, and Encanto. Residents of the district from 16 to 18 years old are encouraged to apply.
