City Offers Residents Academy to Build Understanding
The program is designed to cultivate understanding and enhance the relationship between city government and its residents. Participants will gain knowledge and insight through discussions, demonstrations and site visits. In addition, the academy gives city staff the opportunity to receive community feedback.
The 2018 spring academy is set to begin April 5, 2018 and will run for eight weeks. Classes will be held Thursday evenings lasting approximately three hours, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. Some special department tours many require an alternative schedule. Participants should commit to attend every session. A class schedule will be available closer to the start of the spring academy.
Each class will be held on-site at various city facilities. Topics will include:
- Introduction to City Government and Planning
- Community Development
- Public Works
- Waterloo Center for the Arts & Waterloo Public Library
- Public Safety
- Parks and Recreation
- Waste Water Plant
- Waterloo Regional Airport
