185th Street “Planned Action” Challenged in Court

Posted to News

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.

City Council to Vote on 185th Street Subarea March 16

Posted 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.
