Light rail is coming to North City, and the city is going to be making considerable zoning changes as part of the 185th Street Station Subarea Plan. The current “preferred alternative” under consideration would assign a MUR-85 designation — allowing the construction of seven story buildings — to significant portions of North City. The Planning Commission and City Council will be voting on the plan within the next few months, so the time to provide input is now.

At the November meeting, Miranda Redinger, Senior Planner for the City of Shoreline, will be giving a presentation to get us “caught up” on the zoning changes under consideration.

  • What changes to expect
  • Property value impact
  • Building heights
  • Parking
  • Zoning definitions

There will also be a discussion on what opportunities there are to influence the decisions being made.

Please come!

September Meeting Wrap-Up

Posted to News

The Association is Alive!

Wow! We had a fantastic meeting Tuesday night (September 23) with about 45 people showing up. At the meeting a number of topics of interest were identified for future discussion/speakers/followup. These topics included:

  • learning more about 185th Station Area Planning/Zoning,
  • connecting with Police on crime prevention
  • community emergency preparedness
  • community building activities/events
  • traffic/speeding,
  • economic development
  • supporting a sense of place/personality in North City

Best of all, a number of people volunteered to form a North City Leadership Group to follow up on ideas, advocate for the neighborhood and capitalize on the momentum started on Tuesday to get a Neighborhood Association re-established. They plan to meet on Tuesday, October 14 at 7 pm at Anderson House, 17201 15th Ave NE. If you would like to join the leadership group or just hear the discussion, join them!

Thank you to all who came. Mark your calendar for the next North City Neighborhood Meeting!
