A tremendous collaborative community effort began in 2005 focused on defining what the City of Madera would look like in the year 2025. This process resulted in the delivery of a framework in which the City of Madera operates: Vision 2025. The Vision 2025 Leadership Academy shines an enhanced spotlight on the City’s Vision 2025 efforts in addition to covering the basics of local government. Prior knowledge of Vision 2025 and/or the inner workings of local government are NOT required in order to participate in this program. The only prerequisite is that you have a PASSION for the City’s future!
