New Haven is once again offering this interactive forum for citizens to learn first-hand how the City of New Haven is structured and managed. Residents will also learn the City’s relationship with Allen County and other public agencies; what services and programs are available through various city agencies; how to access needed services; and how to apply this knowledge by serving as an information resource for neighborhoods, non-profit groups and local businesses in New Haven.
This educational series is divided into 9 different sessions and will begin January 25, 2021 and run through May 24, 2021. All Academy sessions will be held on the 2nd and 4th Monday evenings from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Most sessions will be held at the New Haven Community Center located at 7500 S.R. 930 (behind McDonalds). Participants will also have the opportunity to tour city facilities and get a look at how each department operates.
The Academy format brings together elected and appointed officials with Academy participants in an informal setting where participants learn through presentations and information sharing. There’s a real benefit to this program. Some participants now serve on various boards and commissions and some participants have been elected to City Council.
The Citizens’ Academy is free to the public and is only offered once each year. Pre-registration is required and space is limited to the first 40 participants to maintain social distancing. Masks will also be required. To pre-register contact Deb-Anne at the Mayor’s Office at 748-7072.
Effective leadership with a sound understanding of community development in today’s environment is critical to a community’s future. We encourage you to get involved and participate in this educational series.
