The Ridge League of Cities, Inc. was formed for the purpose of assisting its member municipalities in promoting efficiency in local government and in promoting things of common interest to the member cities. The basic mission of the Ridge League has not changed over the years. The municipal officials of the Ridge League of Cities recognize they can best solve their common challenges with a united effort. Companies in the private sector that share and assist member municipalities in their needs are also allowed membership as associate members.
The Ridge League is located at Polk State College Airside Center in Lakeland, and is managed by the Corporate College department.
