Citizen Academy


The Black Mountain Citizen Academy gives citizens an inside look at town government.

Are you curious about how your town government works?  Do you feel like asking the hard questions about how your tax monies are spent? 

Are you ready to become a community leader?

Beginning on August 13, 2020 and continuing through October 16, 2020, the Academy will offer five sessions on weekday evenings. The free classes are from 5:30 p.m. to approximately 9 p.m. and include heavy hours-devours.  Classes are located in town facilities (town hall, public safety building, and public works/recreation building) unless otherwise noted. We will have a field trip either to the wastewater treatment plant or to another facility that will be planned once the academy begins. 

Due to the growing demand of this course, class sizes is limited to 15-20 participants. Participants are expected to attend all of the sessions. 

We will launch the application process in May for the 2020 cycle!
