Would you like to know how Sedona City Hall works? Do you want to have a voice in the future of your City? These questions and others will be answered at the Citizens Academy, a program offered to educate and reach out to the community. Residents will have the opportunity to meet with the Council and various department staff to better understand City operations and issues.

Citizens who complete the Academy are encouraged to participate in the Citizen Engagement Program and/or apply for vacancies on City boards, commissions, and committees. The hope is to identify new leaders in the community and enhance citizen participation in the planning and processes of the City.

Timing and class size

The Citizens Academy begins in fall 2020. It runs for eight weeks every Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at City Hall. This free program is open to City residents who are 16 years and older. Those younger than 18 will need a signed waiver by a parent/guardian. Class size is limited to 20 participants and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.


An application will be posted to this website in summer 2020.
