Program helps residents discover how city works

Centennial 101 takes participants behind the scenes

Posted

Centennial residents who would like to know how local government works — from the buildling plan process and street plowing prioritization to where exactly those tax dollars go — are invited to apply for Centennial 101.

The interactive seven-week program allows residents to go behind the scenes to learn how Centennial is unique. Participants also will learn about ways to be more involved in the community.

Centennial 101 is also an opportunity for government officials to learn from residents. What are your priorities for improving the quality of life for all in Centennial? What do you care about? What are your ideas?

Graduates are encouraged to serve on one of the city's boards and commissions.

Classes take place from 5:30-9 p.m. Thursdays from Aug. 29 to Oct. 14. Graduation will be Monday, Oct. 21; dinner is provided. Attendance at all sessions is required.

Enrollment is limited to 30 participants, and attendance at all seven sessions is highly encouraged. The application deadline is June 30 and participants will be notified of their acceptance in mid-July.
