The Shoreline Planning Commission will study a proposal to designate a property as a Chronic Nuisance when it is used for unlawful purposes or in such a way as to violate the Shoreline municipal code. Properties so designated would have been subject to numerous prior police and code enforcement efforts.
The designation would allow the City to proceed with legal action against tenants and property owners, and would allow police to "shut the property down" as necessary.
It is estimated that this designation would be used perhaps once a year, but would provide relief to the neighbors and reduce the number of police and fire calls.
Anyone wishing to offer public comment to the Planning Commission on this topic may do so after initial questions by the Commission which will follow the presentation of the staff report.
The Planning Commission will meet on Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013, at 7pm in the Council Chambers of Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N.
