June 2023 campaign update: Youth Council's City Heights Urban Village Revitalization Campaign Gets Initial Funding!

May 2023 campaign update: Youth Council continues to work hard on their campaign to revitalize the park. They have met with the offices of 8 councilmembers (one declined to meet with them) and the office of Mayor Todd Gloria. They also spoke at the Fiscal Year 24 public input budget hearing on May 3 and May 10 at City Hall. The youth launched an e-letter campaign asking the community to tell City Council and the mayor to fund their campaign - 550 letters already have been sent! An op-ed piece was sent to local media (the piece was not published but you can read it by clicking here). We are so proud of them - some councilmembers and the community praised them as well - for their passion and dedication to their campaign! A lot of work needs to be done and they will keep on going until the park getd funding. Youth Council is thankful for everyone's support!
