Current Status

In September 2017, staff from Communication and Public Affairs and the Manager’s Office conducted research on best practices and developed recommendations for a residents’ academy in Chapel Hill to launch in 2018. Recommendations were presented to the Town Manager in early November. Since November, the project managers have been testing the format, design, and objectives for the inaugural Peoples Academy with stakeholders, including community organizations, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce, UNC, OWASA, and neighborhood groups. The next several months will be spent refining program content. We expect the application to go live June 1 and the 5-week, 9-session Academy to begin on October 4, 2018.
