YourTownAcademyNEWS Graphic

Learn all about your Town at Your Town Academy, an eight-week class designed to provide Castle Rock residents and business owners a broad education about their Town government.

Applications are being accepted during June at Class size is limited, so don’t wait if you are interested in learning more about how your Town works for you.

“Participating in Castle Rock’s Your Town Academy was a great experience,” said program graduate Susan Paulsen. “Although I have lived in Town for more than 30 years, I now have a new perspective to round out my knowledge about all things Castle Rock.”

Generally, each of the Town’s major departments – Police, Fire and Rescue, Public Works/Roads, Parks and Recreation, Development Services and Water – will host an evening of information and interactive demonstrations regarding their service areas. The remaining two classes will contain information about the Town’s history, structure, funding and general services. A detailed course outline is available online.

The program will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on eight Mondays between Aug. 26 and Oct. 21. A graduation ceremony is expected to be held during the Nov. 5 Town Council meeting.

The class is free to adults ages 18 and up. Participants must complete at least six of the eight classes to receive a Certificate of Completion.

The class size will be capped at 30 participants. Preference for enrollment will be given first to Town residents and business owners. The class will then be filled first come, first served, so apply sooner rather than later if you’d like to join in this opportunity. Those accepted into the class will be notified in July 2019.
