The proposed initiative to repeal Shoreline’s ban on plastic shopping bags won’t appear on the Nov. 5 ballot.
A leader of the group sponsoring the initiative said Saturday that the organization hasn’t collected enough signatures to qualify for the November ballot.
The ordinance, as passed by the Council, would take effect in February. It would have exceptions for wrappings around meat, fresh vegetables, fresh flowers and take-out food. It also would ban non-recyclable paper bags.
