2018 Spring Bettendorf 101: City Citizen Academy

Bettendorf residents are invited to take part in the 2018 Spring Bettendorf 101: City Citizen Academy. The academy is a free seven week informative, interactive workshop that looks into the internal values, philosophy, and operations of the City of Bettendorf. The academy is designed to give Bettendorf residents an in-depth look at how their city operates. You must be at least 18 years of age and be a resident of the City of Bettendorf. The academy is not intended for children.

The academy will run for seven weeks, Thursday, April 5 – Thursday, May 17. Each session will last approximately three hours, 6:00-9:00 p.m. Classes will be held on Thursday nights, except for two scheduled bus tours. We would like the participants to attend every session but understand this is not always possible. We do ask that participants not miss more than two sessions. During the academy, participants may be asked to climb stairs, take part in walking tours, and sit for an extended period of time.

Space is limited. Registration is required.  If space is unavailable, participants will be placed on a waiting list for the next academy.
