Bridging the Gap Between Residents and Local Government
Flower Mound residents are invited to participate in the Flower Mound Citizens Academy (FMCA). Participants will gain a better understanding of their Town’s government and the services provided, while Town staff will gain valuable insight into the priorities and needs of residents.
Ten sessions are held at various Town facilities between January 12 and March 23 from 6 to 8:30 p.m., with most sessions on Tuesdays, followed by a graduation ceremony during a regular Town Council meeting. Each participant must attend one regular Town Council meeting over the course of the Academy. Please review the session schedule to make sure you can make most of the dates as participants can only miss two sessions in order to graduate. View the 2021 schedule here.
Enrollment will open the week of November 1, 2021 for the 2022 FMCA. Sign up to Notify Me (News Flash Alerts) to get notified when enrollment is open.
The class size will be limited to 20 participants and it may be a mix of in-person and online sessions.
Each week residents will hear from different Town staff members, representing various Departments. It is free to Flower Mound residents and business owners, 18-years and older, who are able to commit to a minimum of eight out of the ten sessions. Registration is limited to the first 20 applicants. A release of liability agreement will be required.
