The City of Battle Ground is excited for the return of Battle Ground University! Originally introduced in 2005, BGU provides an in-depth look into how the City of Battle Ground operates.
Battle Ground University (BGU) is a free 5-session program designed to provide community members with a better understanding of the inner workings of their local government. The program covers a wide range of topics including City Administration, Community Development, Finance, Public Works, and Public Safety.
The goal of BGU is to better educate the community on city functions, provide an opportunity to engage with staff, and empower community members to get involved in the continued success of our City!
We want to hear from you! Help inform this year's BGU curriculum by taking this brief online survey, letting us know what city services you are interested in learning more about.
