City Hall Citizens Academy

The City of Murrieta is connected by community. When residents are knowledgeable about and engaged with the City, the entire community benefits.

The City Hall Citizens Academy is a free nine-week program that showcases the inner-workings of City Hall to the community. Throughout the Academy, participants will hear from all the City departments, learning what they do and how that work impacts our community. It’s also a chance to meet City leaders, ask questions, and become a more informed resident.

Graduates will receive a certificate and special recognition at a City Council meeting. Those who complete all three Academies (City Hall, Fire, and Police) will become City Ambassadors. 

Who can attend?

Murrieta residents, business owners, and employees of businesses within the City are welcomed to attend the Academy. Special accommodations may be made for persons under the age of 18.  

How to sign up?

The Academy application period is closed. Please check back in August 2024 for signup.
