City debuts six-week Citizens' Academy workshop April 20

The city of Hillsboro debuts its Citizens’ Academy this spring and is looking for participants.

The academy is a series of six project-based, intensive workshops for Hillsboro citizens interested in building community governance skills. Academy participants will be led through sessions by a team from Portland State University Hatfield School of Government’s National Policy Consensus Center.

Participants will engage in a supported, hands-on process to research, collaborate, and present recommendations to the Hillsboro City Council on a topic of significant community importance.

The academy runs for six consecutive Wednesday evenings beginning April 20.

Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. Friday, March 18.
