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 April (2019) from 6:30 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.

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 22 applicants. A release of liability agreement will be required.
Registration will open in November 2018 for the 2019 sessions. Sign up to the Town's Notify Me news page to get notified when enrollment begins.
