CityWise Project 2018

Applications now open, due by January 5

Apply online

Are you curious about how the City of Shoreline works?  Who maintains the roads?  How does the City create a budget, or plan for the future of our parks?

The City is offering the second CityWise Project, a series of 8 informational and interactive sessions to provide participants an overview of City government and operations.  This series is free of charge, and open to residents, employees, business owners, and students ages 16 and older in Shoreline.  Class size is limited to 15 participants who will be selected with the goal of creating a class makeup that is broadly representative of the entire city and its diverse populations.  Applicants who are Shoreline residents will receive priority.

Classes meet at Shoreline City Hall on Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m., January 23 through February 27, 2018.  There will be one Saturday field trip on February 10, and graduation at a City Council meeting on Monday, March 5.  Participants must be willing to commit to attending all sessions.

The application is below and must be received by 6 p.m. on Friday, January 5 to be considered.  Applications are accepted online only. Notice of acceptance will be sent Wednesday, January 10. If you have any questions, please contact Constance Perenyi, Neighborhoods Coordinator, at or (206) 801-2253.
