Citizens' Leadership Academy

City government touches so many facets of our everyday lives – from the streets we drive on to the clean water that we drink. We know that our trash is picked up every week, and that help is minutes away should we ever have to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency. But exactly how does our City operate?

In an effort to promote understanding of local government and to foster future community leaders, the City of Shoreview has created a Citizens’ Leadership Academy (CLA) for residents. The program will consist of 7 evening meetings, which will be a combination of tours, speakers, interactive participation and question and answer sessions. This program is designed to provide an overview of city government, to allow residents to become better acquainted with the programs & services and to provide an opportunity to meet new people.

The cost is FREE and the only commitment is that participants are asked to attend all sessions. 

The next CLA will take place in 2019. Interested participants will submit an application and be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Class size will be limited to 20 participants. There is no cost to attend the sessions, but participants are strongly encouraged to commit the time to attend each session. Light refreshments will be served.

Completed applications can be submitted either in person at City Hall, or via email to
