Citizens Information Academy Class of 2015

The Town of Estes Park is growing, and so is the need for its community members to learn about local government and how they can take part in shaping their Town's future. The Town of Estes Park Board of Trustees and staff developed a Citizens Information Academy (CIA) program for this purpose. CIA is designed to familiarize community members with how local government works, and to encourage their participation. Those living beyond Town limits are eligible for CIA; however, priority will be given to in-Town residents. There is no cost to participate. Attending CIA is not a prerequisite for election or appointment to a board or commission. However, CIA participants who subsequently served on Town boards and commissions have found it very helpful. CIA is expected to be offered next in 2018.
