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 and March (2020) 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(which is on a Monday and see session schedule for date options). 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.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2020 academy because we've reached our max capacity. Please check back in November of 2020 to apply for the 2021 academy.
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 25 applicants. A release of liability agreement will be required.
