Richmond Beach – Shoreline
In 1995, residents incorporated Shoreline as a City so they could receive better, even exceptional, services for their tax dollar. Looking back, who could have imagined we would have accomplished so much in the short years since incorporation? Concrete evidence of these accomplishments can be seen in the capital investments that have been made across our city.
he City of Shoreline has worked hard to meet residents expectations since incorporation, and Shoreline families, neighborhoods and businesses have much to be proud of. Making Shoreline a great community takes the work of many. One service area that contributes to our quality of life is the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services Department.
Shoreline residents continue to give their community high marks. Seventy-two percent of Shoreline residents believe the City is moving in the right direction and 92% rate Shoreline as an excellent or good place to live.
Every two years, the City of Shoreline conducts a random sampling survey to measure satisfaction with City services and to help determine community priorities. Surveys are mailed to 3,500 Shoreline households. Of those 891 were completed, far exceeding the validation goal.
An area of concern that arose from the 2012 survey is residents’ perceptions of safety. There was a general decrease in residents feeling of safety across the City from the prior survey in 2010. The City will look closely at this issue to determine what can be done to help improve residents’ feelings of safety. However, even with the declines, 78% of residents still feel safe in Shoreline and 91% feel safe in their neighborhoods during the day.
The City of Shoreline is divided into 14 neighborhoods (see map). Through the neighborhoods program the City supports neighborhood associations to facilitate residents working together to improve their community and neighborhood.
