What is City 101?

Have ever wondered what it’s like to be a police officer in our city?  How about what it takes to pilot a snow plow or Steamboat Springs Transit bus?  What factors go into planning for future community growth? Or do you have the determination to go into a smoke filled building completely in the dark?  

You’ll learn the answers to these questions along with many others during the fourth installment of the city’s educational and awareness program, City 101.  Bringing together city employees and community members, the City 101 program offers in-depth insights into city operations, straight from the individuals responsible for them day-in and day-out.   

The goal of the eight session City 101 program is to: 

  • create a shared understanding of the city’s mission and purpose
  • increase community member and employee understanding of the city and its operations
  • enhance community member and employee ability to serve as ambassadors for the city

One community member wrote after the 2017 course, “Thank you for orchestrating a superlative Civics 101 course, it was the perfect antidote to the trend toward citizen apathy and disengagement as well as distrust of government.  I fell in love with my local government and the people who staff it.

Employees from the City of Steamboat Springs along with members of the community will be selected to learn more about the city and its operations through field trips, forums, and interactive activities.  City 101 takes place on Wednesday between January and June, typically from 8:30am to 3:30pm with lunch provided. 

The program is open to all members of the community and city employees. Interested individuals must submit an application to the program. 

Applications are due December 12, 2017 and may be submitted to City Hall at 10th Street or via email.  Members of the 2018 City 101 class will be selected by the city’s management team.
