New year, new ways to get involved with your City! 

Bedford residents and business owners are invited to participate in “Bedford University,” the City’s citizens academy. During this 10-week program, participants will learn the inner workings of the City’s government and services provided, while staff gain valuable insight listening to resident priorities and feedback. Each week will highlight various City departments, including Police, Fire, Communications, Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Library, Development, and more. This program is free and occurs once a year. 

Bedford University 2024 will begin on Thursday, February 8, and take place every Thursday evening from 6 to 9 p.m., concluding with a special graduation in April. 


For questions or additional information, please email Brandi West, Assistant to the City Manager.
