Mayor's office surveys residents on civic academies
The mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services has launched a survey to gauge public interests around “Mayor Walsh’s Civic Academies,” a new program designed to cultivate civic leaders within Boston communities.
“As we prepare for the development of these Civic Academies, this is an opportunity for residents to share their ideas about how this service will be shaped,” said Mayor Walsh. “We want local, city government to be accessible to everyone; it enables everyone to attend various events organized by our City departments, participate in, and benefit from the positive changes that come along.”
According to a statement issued by the mayor’s office, the three goals of the academies are to
• Provide an outlet for all residents to collaborate with local government;
• Develop a better understanding of how to serve Boston residents;
• Create learning opportunities that support civic engagement and community service.
