Port Orange University

Citizens' Academy

The City of Port Orange is proud to offer a citizens' academy, "Port Orange University," which will give citizens a greater insight into the various services and functions of city government. Each day, it is more than likely that Port Orange residents utilize a product or service provided by the City of Port Orange.

Based on the feedback we received from the recent citizens survey we conducted on hosting a citizens' academy, the City is happy to announce that the program will begin on Monday, September 11, 2017, from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. and will continue each Monday evening for 9 weeks. The cost is free.
