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 2019 Spring academy is April 4 through May 23 . Classes will be held Wednesdays lasting approximately 3 hours, from 6:00p.m.-9:00 p.m. Some special department tours many require an alternative schedule. Participants may attend one or both sessions. A class schedule will be available closer to the start of the spring academy.
