This project will revise northbound / southbound signal phasing from permissive to flashing yellow arrow operation to address at-angle collisions at the intersection of Meridian Avenue N and N 155th Street in Shoreline.

Public Hearing and Approval of Human Service Block Grant Allocations
This plan specifies how the City will allocate both City General Fund dollars and federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. In order to use CDBG funding, the City must hold a public hearing and adopt the Human Service Funding Plan’s proposed use of CDBG funding each year.
In March of this year the City Council determined a new level of funding to support the City’s human services grants, and with this increased funding, provided policy direction to prioritize services focused on basic needs and counseling. These services both secure a foundation of support for the community and are key elements of the City’s response to homelessness.
