HOW do the county government and the schools use your tax $$$?
WHAT are Fluvanna’s plans for economic development and job creation?
WHO should you go to when you need help?
WHERE can you learn what’s fact and what’s fiction in Fluvanna?
The Fluvanna Leadership Development Program provides answers to those questions, and so much more. You’ll have an opportunity to talk face-to-face with all senior county officials. You’ll meet those involved with the county’s emergency services, social services and schools. You’ll go on an all-day bus tour of county sites–some that even natives seldom see–such as the Rosenwald schools, wineries, the Tenaska Power Plant and local businesses.
6:30 – 9:00 pm beginning in September and concluding in March. Topics for discussion include Fluvanna County history, government, economic development, natural resources and rural preservation, human services, and the school system.
Enrollment is limited. Applications are available from the Extension Office or online from this website. They must be returned with the $50 registration fee.Classes meet twice a month, September to March. The $50 tuition includes the bus tour & lunch, and a graduation dinner.
