175th Street Corridor Improvements Survey

Posted on to News

Changes are coming to 175th street between I-5 and Stone Way. Planning started in 2019. The City has now developed “design concepts” for the project and would like to gather community feedback on them before choosing a preferred design.

Visit 175corridor.participate.online to view and give feedback on the design concepts the City has developed for roadway, bike, and pedestrian improvements to the N 175th Street corridor between Stone Avenue N and I-5. Concepts also include intersection improvements at N 175th Street and Meridian Avenue N. Design concepts are based on feedback collected in the spring of 2019.

The City will also be hosting a one-hour webinar on the project on July 29 at 6:00pm. For more information on the project and the webinar, see the City's project webpage.

The NE 195th street pedestrian overpass across I-5 will be closed for several weeks this Summer to facilitate the constructions of the Lynnwood Link light rail extension. The closure is scheduled to start on July 6 and expected to last roughly six weeks.

The nearest alternate pedestrian routes across I-5 are at NE 185th and at NE 205th.

For more information see SoundTransit’s page about the closure.


Proposition 1: Shoreline Parks Bond

Posted on to News

On January 25, Shoreline City Council voted to place a bond measure on the April 27, 2021, special election ballot. If approved by Shoreline voters, this proposition authorizes improvements to City parks, including the acquisition of new park land.

The City will be providing Factual Community Presentation on the proposition via Zoom at the following times:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 3 at 12:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 12:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 11 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 18 at 12:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, March 2 at 12:00 p.m.

Here is the Zoom link for the meeting. Further details may be found on the City's Prop 1 webpage.

Details

Significant improvements will be made at Brugger’s Bog, Hillwood, Richmond Highlands, Briarcrest (Hamlin East), and James Keough Parks. These improvements, depending on the location, may include playgrounds, splash-pads, multi-sports courts, walking trails, picnic shelters, off-leash dog areas, and a fully accessible play area for people of all physical abilities.

Concept plan for “Ridgecrest Park” (Hamlin East)

Park land acquisitions and improvements will expand Paramount Open Space, Brugger’s Bog, and Rotary Park, and will include additional park land acquisitions.

Cost

If approved, Proposition 1 will authorize the City to issue up to $38,500,000 in general obligation bonds to finance and refinance these projects and set excess property taxes to repay those bonds. The bonds would mature within 20 years. Although the exact amount of property taxes per household necessary to repay the bonds will depend on interest rates and property values, the City estimates the annual property tax paid by the owner of a median-valued home ($517,000) would be approximately $112 per year or $9 per month. This is roughly a 50% increase over the cost of the expiring $18.5 million 2006 park improvement bond.
