Want to know exactly how city tax dollars are spent? Curious about the specifics of City operations? Are you interested in making Fort Collins a better place? Then CityWorks 101 is for you. The City of Fort Collins is offering an eight-week program, which will give residents a behind-the-scenes look at running a city. CityWorks 101 provides a unique opportunity to learn more about what services the City provides, and how the City provides them. Participants will see first hand how the City makes decisions and allocates funds.
Classes take place on Thursday evenings, 6-9 p.m., March 24-May 12, and cover the following topics:
The program also includes a graduation ceremony on May 17 and two optional Saturday morning tours, dates TBD.
To be considered for CityWorks 101 you must have lived within the Fort Collins Growth Management Area (GMA) for at least one year. Class size is limited to a maximum of 30 people; priority is given to applicants who will attend all eight classes.
Past CityWorks 101 participants are regularly invited to attend Alumni Forums or other special events. Alumni Forums are single sessions offered four to six times per year in order to dive deeper into current projects, policy issues, or topics not covered in the regular CityWorks 101 class.
