Sedona To Hold First Citizens Academy

Sedona AZ–Would you like to know how Sedona City Hall works? Do you want to have a voice in the future of your City? These questions and others will be answered at the Citizens Academy, a new initiative of Sedona City Council to educate and reach out to the community. Residents will have the opportunity to meet with the Council and various staff members from City departments to better understand City of Sedona operations and issues.

The City of Sedona will hold the first Citizens Academy beginning March 24, 2011.  The Academy will run for seven weeks every Thursday from 6 to 9 PM at City Hall. This free program is open to Sedona residents who are 16 years and older. Those younger than 18 will need a signed waiver by a parent or guardian. Class size is limited to 20 participants and is filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Citizens who complete the Academy will be encouraged to apply for vacancies on City commissions, boards, and committees. The hope is to identify new leaders in the community and encourage them to get involved in the City. 

For an application, please contact Communications Manager Ginger Wolstencroft at 928-204-7119 or email gwolstencroft@SedonaAZ.gov.  The application is also available on the City’s website at www.SedonaAZ.gov/Council click on Citizens Academy. Visit this web site’s Calendar of Events for a timely reminder–the Academy is posted on March 24 2011 along with pertinent information.
