First-come, first-served registration is now open for the next session of the 2022 Bellaire Citizens Academy, which will launch next month.
Residents meet for 10 weeks, visiting various departments and experiencing all aspects of city government firsthand. The program is designed to create informed residents who will be better equipped to take leadership roles — both elected and appointed — in city government.
Sessions run from 7-9 p.m. each Thursday from Sept. 8-Nov. 3, with three Saturday sessions on Oct. 1 and 8 and Nov. 3 for a parks tour, optional CPR training, and wastewater treatment plan tour, respectively.
Graduation is tentatively planned for 7 p.m. Nov. 7.
Anyone interested in applying should email Raquel Porras, firstname.lastname@example.org.
