Walnut Creek 2015 Citizens Institute

Jan 31, 2015 06:19PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

Registration is under way for the 2015 Citizens Institute, which will be held on Wednesdays, 6:30-9pm, from February 25 through April 8. Final graduation celebration is on Saturday, April 11, 9am to 1:30pm.  

The Citizen's Institute consists of a series of sessions in which citizens learn first-hand how the city works. You can meet and get to know your neighbors, city officials, and city employees, and gain an improved awareness of available city services and community resources. You will discover opportunities to be involved with local government. Anyone who lives or works in Walnut Creek (including unincorporated Walnut Creek) and has an interest in local government is invited to sign up. Classes are designed for 30-35 students to encourage discussion, involvement, and interaction. The classes are popular and usually fill up fast! 

Typical Curriculum:

Understanding the Big Picture
Meet the mayor and city manager. Explore the role of government and what it means to all of us. Learn how the city council, commissions, and advisory committees work together.

Enjoying Yourself in Walnut Creek
Learn about services that enhance quality of life (e.g., recreation, arts, and community services programs). Take a backstage tour of the Dean Lesher Regional Center For The Arts, and enjoy a reception in the Bedford Gallery.
