145SCC Updates and Notes

Saturday, April 25, 2015

By Robin Lombard, 145th Station Citizens' Committee

On Thursday April 23 there were two key meetings concerning the 145th Street station area:

Sound Transit voted to include a 145th Street station as part of the Lynnwood Link Light Rail route. And they are building the rail line so as to leave room for the later addition of a station at 130th. According to the web site here is the schedule:
  • 2015 - 2018: Final design and permitting
  • 2018 - 2023: Construction
  • Late 2023: Open for service

The 145th Station Citizens Committee decided to continue meeting during the eight or nine months leading up to the City Council decision to re-zone the station area. Meetings will continue to be the fourth Thursday of the month at 301 City Hall. We will focus on the following goals:
  • Serve as an information clearinghouse for what is happening in relation to the station area.
  • Work on one or more proposals to the City about the station area (proactive ideas on issues such as parking).
  • Keep up with Planning Commission discussions on building codes and other issues.
  • Follow the progress of the 145th Corridor Route Development Plan.
Upcoming meetings of interest:

Shoreline Planning Commission: May 7, 7-9 pm, Shoreline City Hall. Agenda
This meeting includes a Study Session for the Commission about development code amendments. Details here.

145th Corridor Route Development Plan Open House: May (date not yet posted)
This meeting will solicit feedback on the 145th Street corridor. Stay tuned for specific details when they are posted.
