Shoreview has long been recognized as a great place to live, work, and play. This is confirmed with a quality of life/city services survey conducted by the Morris-Leatherman Company (MLC) every 3-5 years.

The survey gathers information on the following areas:

  • Residential demographics
  • Quality of life
  • Recreation
  • City services
  • Taxes and city services
  • Development
  • Communications

According to MLC:

  • Residents express pride in key community values:
    • Sense of connection
    • Strong neighborhoods
    • Safe streets
    • Exemplary park system
    • Affordably excellent city services
  • Citizens have very high expectations; but, as in the past, the City continues to meet or exceed most residents’ needs.
  • Shoreview remains one of the highest rated suburbs in the Metropolitan Area.
  • City services are delivered effectively and efficiently.
