City 101

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-October 19, 2022-Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a police officer or firefighter in our city? How about what it takes to pilot a snowplow or Steamboat Springs Transit bus? What factors go into planning for future community growth? Or what it takes to manage an airport, ski area, wastewater plant or vast array of open space; all while keeping the financial sheet balanced?

You’ll learn the answers to these questions along with many others during City 101, now in its eighth year. Bringing together city employees and community members, the leadership program delivers in-depth insights into city operations, straight from the individuals responsible for them, day-in and day-out. 

During City 101, participants hear straight from the different divisions on what it takes to provide a high level of service to citizens in our constantly changing mountain community.

“City 101 has become a cornerstone leadership program and a vital community resource for understanding city government and its programs and services,” said Special Projects/IGS Manager and City 101 Program Director Winnie DelliQuadri. “After the sessions, we find citizens are more engaged and actively interacting with their city government; that’s what the program is all about.” 

 The goal of City 101 is to: 

  • create a shared understanding of the city’s mission and purpose
  • increase the understanding of the city and its operations
  • enhance the ability to serve as ambassadors for the city

A mix of city staff along with community members will be selected to learn more about the city and its operations through field trips, forums, interactive activities, and live demonstrations. Sessions take place on select Wednesdays between December and May, typically from 8:30am to 3:30pm. Interested community candidates must apply to the program. Applications can be found at and are due Nov. 1, 2022.
