185th Street “Planned Action” Challenged in Court

Posted on to News (Updated )

The fight over the rezoning around the planned 185th Street light rail station is, apparently, not over.

On Monday, the Shoreline Preservation Society (SPS) filed a Complaint for Declaratory Judgment against the City of Shoreline. The action seeks to nullify the “planned action ordinance” (Ord. No. 707) which was adopted by the City Council on March 16. SPS has also filed a challenge to Ord. No 707 with the Central Puget Sound Growth Management Hearings Board.

For more information, including the legal documents that were filed with King County, or if you would like to support their efforts, see the SPS blog.

Posted on to News (Updated )

Update

The Council adopted all three 185th Street rezoning ordinances at the March 16 meeting. You can read a bit more about the decision at the Shoreline Area News blog.

On February 23 the Shoreline City Council directed staff to make changes to the Planning Commission’s recommended zoning map for the 185th Street Station Subarea.

Council is scheduled to adopt the entire 185th Street Station Subarea Plan package, including the zoning map and development regulations, on March 16.

The current proposal has the rezone occurring in three phases:

  • Phase 1 occurring immediately upon adoption of the Subarea Plan and zoning map.

  • Phase 2 would begin in 2021

  • Phase 3 in 2033.

Panel Discussion on Taxes and Real Estate

Posted on to Events (Updated )

When
Thursday, December 11,
Where
Council Chambers, Shoreline City Hall
17500 Midvale Ave N
Shoreline, WA 98133

On December 11 at City Hall, the 145th Station Citizens Committee (145SCC) will host a panel discussion on taxes and real estate for homeowners in the two light rail station subareas.

The idea for the panel emerged out of the meetings of the 145SCC, at which homeowners questioned the potential implications of redevelopment of neighborhoods surrounding the future 145th Station, particularly in regards to taxes and real estate. These topics are also applicable to homeowners in neighborhoods adjacent to the future 185th Station.

The volunteer panelists include representatives from King County Department of Assessments, Windermere Real Estate, and North Coast Realty Advisors. The event will be held in the Council Chambers of Shoreline City Hall at 7pm to 8:30pm, 17500 Midvale Ave N.

All are welcome. Questions about the event may be directed to 145SCC@gmail.com.
