Citizens Academy

The next Fayetteville Citizens Academy class is being held on Wednesday, March 11, with a focus on several divisions of the City’s Public Services Department, including Traffic Services, Street Maintenance, Stormwater and for the first time, Solid Waste. Academy participants will have an opportunity to engage in hands-on learning, view equipment, tour facilities and meet the personnel tasked with serving the community.

Applicants must be City of Fayetteville residents, or work in Fayetteville city limits. The class size is limited to 25 residents. Class begins at 8:15 a.m. and will conclude at or before 5 p.m.

To apply, scroll to the bottom of the page, complete the fillable form online. You can also download and fill out the application, and email it to CorpComm@ci.fay.nc.us. Include “Citizens Academy Application” in the email subject line. The submission window for this session closes March 2, and applicants will be notified of their acceptance by close of business on Friday, March 6.

 

“Our one-day Citizens Academy event gives residents an opportunity to see City of Fayetteville staff in their element, doing what they do every day to support and serve our citizens,” said Corporate Communications Director Kevin V. Arata.

Lunch will be provided and residents are asked to dress appropriately for the weather in comfortable, closed-toe footwear. Moderate walking and up to 30-minute periods of standing at some divisions should be expected, as participants will tour facilities normally not accessible to the public. Participants may also be filmed or photographed by City staff.

The class will begin and end at the Grove Street Conference Room, located at 455 Grove St in the City building, adjacent to the Valero gas station.

As a reminder, this Citizens Academy class is a one-day session that allows for more residents to attend the quarterly sessions. This format differs from the previous seven-week nightly Citizens Academy held in years past where residents attended all seven sessions.
