Youth Night at Council March 25th

In 2018, Town Council proposed the Dalmeny Youth and Young Adults Committee as a way to connect and engage with youth and young adult residents. Following a promotion and application period, there was not enough interest to establish the committee at this time.

Not discouraged, Council began to consider other ways to draw the interests of this demographic. Beginning March 25, and continuing once a quarter following that date, Council will host a YOUTH NIGHT during a regularly scheduled council meeting.

YOUTH NIGHT AT COUNCIL welcomes Dalmeny junior and senior youth, along with young adults, to attend a regular council meeting and speak to Council as part of a delegation scheduled on the agenda at 7:15pm. Youth and young adults are encouraged to consider topics of interest to bring forward to the attention of council members. Council will come prepared with a list of topics they would appreciate input on from our youth and young adults.

Snacks will be provided and the delegation is encouraged to stay for the remainder of the Council meeting.

Council hopes to create an environment where junior and senior youth and young adults feel comfortable approaching their local officials, learn more about local government processes and better understand how they can have a positive impact on their community. Join us March 25th for the first YOUTH NIGHT AT COUNCIL!
