Palmdale Partners Academy Accepting Applications for Fall Session

Registration is on for the City of Palmdale’s 2021 fall session of the Palmdale Partners Academy, which will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 14, and continue through Nov. 4.  

“The eight-week Palmdale Partners Academy, which has been recognized by the American Public Works Association (APWA) as a “Best Practice,” is designed to present citizens with a first-hand look at city operations and services through the eyes of each department,” said Palmdale Management Analyst and Academy Leader Terrie Zayas.

During the Academy, participants will interact with City staff and learn the challenges facing municipal governments as well as gain insight into the City’s future goals and objectives.   

Classes will meet from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays at the Chimbole Cultural Center. Interested persons may apply online at https://cityofpalmdale.org/337/Partners-Academy, or by contacting Zayas at 661/267-5450 or tzayas@cityofpalmdale.org.  Registration closes Sept. 2.

Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 related restrictions on public meetings, dates are subject to change.

A graduation and alumni dinner is scheduled for Thursday, November 4.

“This is the 14th year that we’ve held the academy and of the Academy and we’ve had over 300 graduates who not only gained valuable knowledge about the City they call home, but who have also made new friends and connections while equipping themselves to become more effective in community engagement,” said Mayor Steve Hofbauer.

“The Academy will help citizens gain a better understanding of local government, the community, the resources and how to get things done,” said Mayor Pro Tem Laura Bettencourt.

“If you’ve ever wondered who decides what businesses come to town, or where does the funding come from to take care of the City, or how you can bring an idea forward to our City Council, the Academy will help answer all those questions for you,” said City Manager J.J. Murphy.
