Here is the class schedule:

Oct. 30, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. City Hall 101. How are city laws made? Which city department handles potholes, stray dogs or building permits? Attend this workshop to learn how Fort Worth’s city government is structured and how your concerns can be heard.
Nov. 6, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Connecting With Your Neighbors. What is great about your neighborhood? Attend this workshop to learn how schools, parks, businesses or history can help you connect with your Fort Worth neighbors and city services.

All workshops will be held at TCC-Trinity River Campus 300 Trinity Campus Circle, in the Power Room on the Fourth Floor.

Lunch will be provided by TCC. Register online or call 817-392-2227 to guarantee your spot. Registration will close one week before each workshop.
