DRCOG Citizens Academy

The Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) is taking applications for the Spring Citizens’ Academy. This nationally recognized, seven-week course explores pressing regional issues including transportation, housing and population growth, as well as how to better engage and participate in your community. Classes are Thursday evenings from 6-9 p.m. April 4 – May 16 at the DRCOG office, 1001 17th Street, Denver. The deadline for applications is March 8.

Early in 2018 DRCOG assumed control and management of the Citizens’ Academy, formerly a program of Transit Alliance, and expanded the Academy focus from its foundation of transportation issues. Through the nationally recognized academy, participants learn from local experts and leaders, network with other residents and act on what they’ve learned. Since 2007, more than 800 residents from around the region have completed the Academy which has inspired dozens of participants to pursue public service in the Denver region. Numerous academy alumni have gone on to serve as elected officials, and hundreds of participants have been appointed to positions in public agencies or nonprofit organizations that shape Colorado’s future.


The Road Ahead 2019: The Smart Traveler

Mobility used to be about access to the family car. Today, with more options and technology tools, the smart phone is becoming our access to mobility. Knowing what options are within your reach and evaluating these options based on cost, time and sometimes environmental impact is making travelers wiser and more efficient about their choices.  The Road Ahead brings key policy experts together with community members, elected officials, policy makers, private developers, and transportation industry leaders. The presentations elicit animated dialog from panelists and audience members who have a passion for transportation solutions.
