The legislation that would limit density at Point Wells unless Snohomish County negotiates with nearby cities has cleared the rules committee of the State House of Representatives, allowing the full body to consider it.

The bill’s principal sponsor, State Rep. Ruth Kagi, says that the aim of the bill is to force Snohomish County to negotiate with the cities of Shoreline and Woodway over impacts of the condominium development on those cities.

Richmond Beach Drive Northwest in Shoreline is the only road in and out of the development.

A companion bill has passed a key Senate committee.

The bills’ sponsors include State Reps. Kagi and Cindy Ryu and Sen. Maralyn Chase, Democrats from the 32nd Legislative District, including Shoreline. Lake Forest Park, Woodway, Kenmore, south Edmonds and unincorporated areas of King and Snohomish counties.
