WEST HOLLYWOOD—The city of West Hollywood is looking for feedback from young adults in the community as part of an effort to ensure those voices of West Hollywood are well represented in the community and local government. According to a press release from the city of West Hollywood website, the online survey will be promoted on the City’s Facebook and Twitter pages (@wehocity).
Figures from the 2010 Census, noted that half of West Hollywood’s population accounts for individuals under the age of 40. There is a lack of representation of millennials in elected and appointed leadership roles in the region. To change those numbers, West Hollywood is looking to engage the “next generation” by having them complete a short online survey, which can be viewed at www.surveymonkey.com/r/wehonextgen.
“We want to ensure that all West Hollywood residents have the opportunity to contribute to the success of our city,” said Councilmember Lindsey P. Horvath. “‘Generation Next’ will provide important input and insight from our community’s largest stakeholder group and next generation of civic leaders.”
West Hollywood City Council approved the development of a Young Adult Advisory Board earlier in the year. The Board is representative of the City’s younger demographic and focuses on matters related to young adults that include education, economic opportunity, workforce entry, transportation, housing and engagement. The Advisory Board is expected to foster ideas that are geared for innovation that can be recommended to the WeHo City Council.
