Love living here and want to learn more? Go behind the scenes with city staff for a fun, informative look at the City of Keller in our first ever Keller Citizens Academy!

Participants will enjoy tours, presentations, demonstrations and hands-on activities focused on every aspect of municipal government, from public safety to parks and recreation, community development to library services, and public works to public art. It's the perfect opportunity to learn firsthand how city leaders make the decisions that affect our everyday lives, and how citizens like you can be apart of it all.
