2014 Concord 101 details
Concord 101 will begin in the fall of 2014. The class is free to residents of Concord who are at least 18 years of age.
The course will meet weekly for 14 weeks. Students are allowed to miss two classes and still graduate the course. Students must also attend at least one City Council meeting. For an example, the 2013 schedule is available for download.
Curious as to how the name "Harmony" came about? Ever wonder just how many water lines supply Concord? How many dump trucks does the city have?
Every class is packed with activities and information. Classes will be interactive with opportunities to ask questions and give feedback.
Students will tour City facilities, view equipment used by various departments, and get a first hand look at what it takes to run City services such as solid waste, water, police, fire, parks and recreation, and much more.
In addition, several community partners will be on board to give a behind-the-scenes look at what makes Concord such a great place to live.
The class will meet every Tuesday beginning in late August and end with a graduation ceremony in December. Class will take place from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.
