  • At least 16 years old
  • Live or work in Shoreline
  • Have connections and knowledge of Shoreline organizations and/or resident groups
  • Commit to attending ESJ Workgroup planning meetings. An estimated 3 planning sessions for 2-3 hours each will be scheduled (dates/times in May to be determined). All sessions will be held online.
