PALMDALE Partners Academy

The Palmdale Partners Academy is designed to give residents a firsthand look at City operations and services. Participants will interact with City staff, learn about the challenges facing local government, and gain insight into the City's goals and objectives.

Participants will learn the answers to the who, what, why, where, when and how questions they have, such as:

  • Who decides what businesses come to town?
  • How do I get a new recreation and culture program?
  • How do I present to the City Council?
  • Where does City funding come from?

Whether you are an aspiring politician, a business owner or an interested resident, you will find the Academy packed with valuable information.
