145th SCC Meeting on Sept 24, 2015
Meeting Notes from Robin Lombard, committee co-chair

145th Corridor Study

Last year the City of Shoreline started to study how to improve 145th Street. Details here. The city has been working with a Citizen’s Advisory Task Force (CATF) – people who represent you in this process. 

Opportunities for feedback on the future of the 145th corridor:
  • 145th Corridor Study Open House Sept 30th 6pm City Hall – Attend and provide feedback on the displays and options that the Study leaders are considering recommending to Council.
  • Email your representative on the Citizen’s Advisory Task Force (CATF) and tell them what you want/don’t want: List of CATF Members (includes email addresses).
  • The Corridor Study project schedule indicates Study leaders will participate in a City Council meeting in December. This will be an opportunity for citizens to provide feedback directly to Council about plans for 145th Street. More information as it becomes available.
  • Of course, citizens can provide feedback to Council at any time by filling out a comment form on the City website.
Parking in the 145th Station Area (during construction as well as after station opens)

More than one member of this group has already been active in letting the City know our concerns about parking in the station area. We need to continue to write to Council so that they know it is on our minds, and so that they know our ideas on how we think they should be planning for it. Hopefully this will come up as a topic at an upcoming Council meeting.

Citizen’s Contribution to Comprehensive Plan

Any one of us can suggest amendments to the City’s Comprehensive Plan. From the City’s website:
The Comprehensive (Comp) Plan Amendment Process is an opportunity for individuals to propose changes to Shoreline's Comp Plan. Suggested amendments usually address changing conditions or emerging issues and may include changes to policies or the future land use map (see application). To be eligible for consideration, applications for proposed amendments must be submitted by the last business day in December.
Upcoming Meetings

We will meet on October 22 as planned in 301 City Hall. We will not be meeting on the 4th Thursday of November or December. However, we may have a meeting in early December if there is any movement on the 145th Corridor Study.
