The Crestwood Citizens Academy is a free seven-week program for city residents that touches on virtually every facet of city government.

Class will be held Wednesdays, March 27 through May 8, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at various city locations.

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided at each session.

“We want residents to come away with a better understanding of how decisions are made, how city funds are allocated, and how each department operates,” City Administrator Kris Simpson said in a news release.

Sessions will include tours, demonstrations, a question-and-answer session and educational discussions to give participants a better understanding of city services and current projects.

All participants must be 18 years old and a Crestwood resident or business owner.

Preregistration required by March 18. To register, contact Sarah Belcher at 314-729-4712 or
