Our Citizens Academy is a fun, interactive, immersive experience designed to give our citizens an up-close look at their City government in action. Citizens Academy is held once per year and is open to all city residents ages 18 and older. Class size is limited.
This civic education program, coordinated by the City’s Communications department, is an effort to provide our citizens with a deeper understanding of how their city government works, and give them more information about the daily operations and services provided on the local government level.
Our Fall 2022 Citizens Academy class was "paused" due to hurricanes Ian and Nicole. The class will resume with the same class members in January 2023.
We anticipate taking applications for the January 2024 class in Fall 2023. Watch our social media channels for updates.
