Citizens Academy Update

Citizens Academy Update

The City of Eden’s annual Citizens Academy will not be held this fall. The unpredictability of social distancing and capacity restrictions for the rest of the year have affected scheduling for the City along with the rest of the country.

Interim City Manager Terry Shelton said it was a difficult decision to make. “The Citizens Academy is one of the most effective tools we have to help increase citizen knowledge about the workings of local government,” he said. “Graduates of the academy have become members of City Council, as well as other boards and commissions. It has been a tremendously effective educational and outreach resource for employees and citizens and we regret having to pause it, even temporarily.”

The City encourages anyone interested to stay tuned. Plans to restart the academy will be in place as soon as it is safe to do so.

For more information, please call City Clerk Deanna Hunt at 336-623-2110, option 8.
