Citizens Academy

What is a Citizens Academy?  It is an exciting opportunity for residents to increase their knowledge about the workings of local government and to become more involved in the shaping and development of their community.

This spring, we're focusing on our Public Safety Departments! 

“The Richmond Heights Citizens’ Academy gives residents an in-depth look at our municipal government, allowing participants to interact and engage with city staff. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn more about the numerous departments that keep our city running 365 days a year.”
- Stephen Eisele, 2017 Citizens Academy Graduate
