About The Shoreline CityWise Project
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.
One graduate noted: “CityWise gave me a lot more insight into what it takes to make a city work. I have a greater appreciation for the balanced work that occurs. Staff presentations were imaginative, appropriate, and educational.”
