185th Street Corridor Strategy Survey

Posted to News

185th Street Multimodal Corridor Strategy

The City of Shoreline recently completed an initial outreach series to gather community and stakeholder input to help envision a corridor that will be safe for pedestrians and bicyclists; support bus and light rail transit service; address traffic flow; create gathering spaces; and encourage neighborhood businesses.

If you were unable to attend any of the events, you can view the open house presentation and displayed materials on the project webpage.

After reviewing information, please take the online survey which is linked on the project webpage. This survey will remain open through Sunday, November 25, 2018.

You may also use the hashtag #Shoreline185 to share your ideas and photos of the corridor or images of other places that include designs or features you would like to see reflected in the future 185th Street Corridor.

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.

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.

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.
