185th Subarea Zoning Still in Play

Posted to News

Diane Hettrick has written a great article on the Shoreline Area News about the current state of the 185th Street Subarea zoning plans. Apparently much has changed recently, and there is growing momentum behind a plan to roll the zoning changes out in phases. (Read the article now.)

There is still time to provide your input, but final decisions will be made soon — the zoning changes are currently scheduled to be adopted onf February 23 — so speak up now!

A good place to make yourself heard would be at the city council meeting on February 9 where the 185th St zoning changes will be discussed. Also, you can call or email your city council members.

There is more information on the subarea plan on the city’s light rail planning page.

Council Chambers, Shoreline City Hall; 17500 Midvale Ave N

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.
