Have you ever wondered who maintains our roads, how the City creates a budget or plans for the future of our parks? Curious citizens have an opportunity to learn how local government works in the Shoreline CityWise Project, a series of 8 interactive classes.
First offered in 2017 as a pilot project, CityWise provides insight into the wide range of services provided by the City. In sessions with elected officials and City staff, participants learn about the structure of Shoreline government, and how different departments function. The second half of each class allows students to experience what they have just learned through interactive experiences, from serving on a mock city council to designing a road.
The third session of CityWise began in January 2019. Please watch for advance notice of the next session in the fall 2019 edition of Currents, and on this page. If you have questions, please contact Constance Perenyi, firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-801-2253.
