Resident Academy


Town of Speedway Resident Academy

The Town of Speedway Resident Academy is a five-session program that is focused on providing residents with a deeper understanding of the Town's various operations and service provision through lecture, discussion, and interactive on-site activities. The goal is to create a better informed population who understands the inner workings of the Town and to create a spark in attendees to get more involved in the growth and development of the community, including possibly being more active in local events and even serving on one of the various Boards and Commissions of the Town.

Throughout the five-session program, participants will tour Town facilities, learn about the day-to-day responsibilities and operations of various departments, gain a greater understanding of the budget process and the Town’s financial standing, meet Town leadership, and get answers to questions about the operations of the Town of Speedway.
