Your Town Academy

Your Town Academy is an eight-week class designed to provide Castle Rock residents and business owners a broad formal education on their Town government.

The program's purpose is: To increase governmental transparency by increasing community awareness about Town operations, with a hope of improving understanding of service levels.

The program consists of eight 2.5-hour sessions, plus a graduation ceremony at a Town Council meeting.

Generally, each of the Town's six major departments - Development Services, Fire and Rescue, Parks and Recreation, Police, Public Works/Streets and Utilities/Water - host an evening of information and interactive demonstrations regarding their service areas.

The remaining two classes contain information about the Town's history, structure, funding and general services. View the 2023 Course Outline (PDF).
