Pueblo West Metropolitan District will host its first Citizen’s Academy this fall. The Citizen’s Academy will give residents the chance to learn more about the District’s service plan, including how special districts differ from cities. The Academy will run Wednesday evenings between September 18 and October 18 from 6 until 9 p.m. Each session will cover a different topic including fire mitigation, parks and recreation, the challenges of street and road maintenance and engineering, the complexities of water law and how the water utility treats river water and delivers potable water into your tap at home.
The Pueblo West Citizen’s Academy is a major component of the District’s effort to inform residents and provide interactive engagement among Pueblo West employees and residents to enhance understanding and support for one another’s role in providing and maintaining the service plan of the Metropolitan District.
Prospective applicants must be over 16 years of age, live, work, or own property in Pueblo West, have no felony convictions, no significant or recent misdemeanor convictions, successfully complete a background check, and be willing to complete a waiver of liability. Prospective participants must commit to attend each of the six week sessions.
The class will be limited to 20 participants, so we urge residents to apply today by visiting www.pueblowestmetro.com/citizensacademy or apply in person at the Pueblo West Metro Administration Office (109 Industrial Blvd.) and ask for Jay-Michael Baker or Laura Savage.
