Citizens Academy is a nine-week civic engagement course. Participants meet weekly for approximately three hours on Thursday evenings. The group tours the Airport, the City Administrative Center, Lee Richardson Zoo, and other City facilities. Presentations are also given by the Fire Department, Police Department, Public Utilities, Public Works, Buffalo Dunes Golf Course, and more. Dinner is served each week.
Citizens Academy provides an opportunity for residents to learn more about the role the City plays in their everyday lives. It's a chance for anyone who’s ever wondered how the City works to get a behind-the-scenes look at local government and its services.
