Sanford Citizens' Academy Registration Now Open

The City of Sanford invites Sanford and Lee County residents to participate in the upcoming session of the Sanford Citizens’ Academy.

Since its inception in 2014, 100 local residents have participated in the program. Graduates say they have a better understanding of local government and a strong desire to be engaged in municipal decisions and events.

The 2020 session will run on Tuesday mornings for 12 weeks starting February 25. Each week will feature a different department, including police, fire, and the municipal golf course. Some standout sessions include trips to the Raleigh Exec Jetport, Sanford Municipal Golf Course, and Central Carolina Enterprise Park.

“We want graduates to understand all the ins and outs of the City and then share their knowledge with the people around them,” explains Mayor Chet Mann. “Our goal is to make the Academy as informative and interactive as possible – and there’s always more to learn,” he says.

Participants will spend time with head staff in each department and be able to ask their most pressing questions. There will also be a special graduation session.

Enrollment for each session is limited to 15 participants to ensure everyone has a rich, unique experience. Registration will end on February 18 or when spaces are full. 

For more information or to register, contact Kelly Miller at 919-777-1133 or Online registration is available at
