The City of Carlsbad is now accepting applications for its spring 2014 Citizens Academy. The free, seven-week course meets weekly starting March 20 from 5 to 8 p.m., except one daytime bus tour.  The academy fills up quickly.  Applicants who don't get a slot for spring will be placed on a waiting list for future academies.  The city holds Citizens Academy every spring and fall.

The academy gives residents an up close look at how the city functions, including city planning, finances, police and fire, public works and cultural arts. Participants will have an opportunity to meet City Council members and city staff as well as get a behind-the-scenes tour of key city operations. The City of Carlsbad began offering the Citizens Academy in 2001 as a way to familiarize residents with their city government. To date, more than 1,000 residents have participated in the program.

For additional information and to receive an application, please call the Citizens Academy information line at 760-434-2800 or visit the city’s website, www.carlsbadca.gov and search for “citizens academy.” Space is limited to 45. Applicants must be 15 years or older, must live in Carlsbad and may only participate once.
