The City of Westerville will again hold a unique citizen-oriented program that offers behind-the-scenes access to known and little-known City programs and services. The Westerville Citizen’s Academy (WCA) is based on the popular Westerville academy programs from the Westerville Divisions of Police and Fire. The model is also popular in other cities as a community engagement program to give residents an opportunity to interact with City departments, staff and services.

WCA is an eight-week program in which participants take part in a three-hour class one night a week during the term of the course. Each week is focused on interactive features, such as exploring equipment, facility tours, demonstrations and hands-on activities.

“Any question from what happens during a power outage to how our community water is sourced and treated will be answered during this experience,” said David Collinsworth, City Manager. “This program is designed for the Westerville resident, to show them every aspect of how their community services are put to work.”

All residents are invited to participate, especially those who have an interest in serving the community on a Board or Commission.
