No more than 17 members nominated and appointed by the Mayor and City Council who must live or work within the village boundaries. Composition is as follows: District 7 - 6 members, Distirct 8 - 9 members, and Mayor - 2 members. Committee residency requirements state at least 75% of the members shall reside at least eleven months of the year at a property of record or location within the village. Up to 25% of the members may be individuals who work at a business in the village on a full-time basis, but live outside the village or outside of the City of Phoenix.
