The Manhattan Beach Mayor’s Youth Council
City Council Workshop
“Skateboard Park at Marine Park?”
Wednesday, April 20, 5:00 – 7:30pm
at Manhattan Beach City Council Chambers
This is our FINAL Manhattan Beach Mayor’s Youth Council Workshop of the 2015-2016 Session
- All students will be participating in this workshop and will be given a role.
- Parents are invited to watch and attend the Recognition Ceremony and Party.
- Recognition Ceremony and Party will take place across the parking lot at the MB Community Room in the Police/Fire Building.
Each student has been given a role in this simulation. Students will be divided up into two teams. Students on Team #1 will have a mayor, city council members, park and rec director, audience members etc.. Team #2 will have the the same plus a few members of staff. Each team will have a resolution before them to vote on whether the city should move forward on applying for a grant to build a skateboard park at Marine Park in Manhattan Beach. “City Council members” will be sitting in the actual chairs and asking questions of staff, and the audience members will be speaking for and against the resolution to persuade council. Those assigned to “audience members pro and con” play a key role in our simulation as their opinions will sway the City Council.
Here is the timeline for the Workshop:
|5:00 – 5:30pm||Dinner/Review Roles||All students meet with Mayor
& other key MB City Staff
|5:30 – 6:15pm||Sim Session #1||MYC Team #1|

|7:30 – 8:00pm||Party||All|
If you can’t make it on April 20th , it is important that you let us know ASAP. We possibly need to reassign your role to another student. It’s easiest if YOU (not your mom or dad) email us your regrets – Penny Bordokas, email@example.com or Kathy Winterhalder, Kathy@speakersla.com.
