Citizens Academy

The 2019 Aspen Citizens Academy is now closed for applications. 

Have you ever wondered:

  • How does the city government really work?
  • How does a building plan go through the approval process?
  • How are streets prioritized for plowing after it snows?
  • Where do my tax dollars go?

Citizens Academy Course

We've developed a Citizens Academy course for you, the Aspen community, to discover answers to these and other common questions. In class, you'll be able to:

  • Learn about government functions
  • Connect with community members, city staff, and city leaders
  • Engage in the issues through facilitated discussion


Applications for the 2019 Citizen Academy were due on July 12 and are now closed. Applications for 2020 will be accepted next summer.
