Concord 101

Concord 101 is an educational experience for citizens of Concord. You'll enjoy learning more about your local government and the services it provides.  We hope to help members of the community better understand how these services work for them.

Additionally, members will be encouraged to take an active role in their neighborhood and city. You will learn how you can play a part in local government. The relaxed setting will make learning about our city fun and exciting!

Course Description

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.

The best thing about Concord 101 is there are NO TESTS!!  For more information on Concord 101 contact  Peter Franzese.
