The City of Shoreline hosted the second of six Transportation Corridor Study Workshops at City Hall March 26 to define impacts to the Shoreline community of this development project.

Future dates of additional workshops are March 13 and 19 as well as April 1 and 16. These take place at City Hall from 7-9pm each of those nights. All residents are encouraged to attend to explain their transportation concerns and to work with others to identify potential solutions.

The format of our evening was designed with 30 minutes of background and update information in a presentation style, then we divided into small groups based on the area where our concerns were focused so we could discuss the details. Traffic maps were displayed to help locate citizen concerns. This was followed by a 30 minute debrief of our ideas and a summary. Many ideas will be assimilated into the study documents.

This is a long term development project, but the time to influence the choices is now. Almost everyone in Shoreline will eventually be impacted by construction and residential traffic changes. 

For questions, contact Transportation Planning Manager Kirk McKinley. Or better yet - come to the next meeting.

Textbook management of the public. One can only hope that small group will one day succeed in showing the sheep the shear madness..

This was not a "breakout group." This was a few residents touring stations during the so-called workshop. The neighbors were as organized as a crowd at a farmer's market.
