How do you perceive our community? Do you really know how your local property and sales tax dollars are being spent? Do you know the services the city provides? Do you understand your role in making this community a better place to live?

The Rocklin Citizens Academy is a free five-week community education program for those interested in learning about how the city works. The academy seeks to engage residents and business owners to learn the ins and outs of Rocklin city government.

Participants will be introduced to a variety of city departments and programs where they will be able to ask questions and discuss issues that are important to them. The academy will introduce and explain the roles and operations of a number of departments and will give participants an opportunity to learn more about what it takes to run a city of Rocklin’s size each day.

The academy will start March 7, and sessions will be held each Thursday at 6 p.m., lasting 90 minutes to two hours. The academy concludes April 4, and a graduation will be held at the City Council meeting April 9. The academy is open to those who live or work in the city.
