Will Aldercrest retain its open space? Planning Commission to decide on Feb 17

Sunday, February 13, 2011

On February 17, 2011 at 7 pm in the Shoreline City Hall Council Chambers, the Shoreline Planning Commission will decide whether to approve the requested zoning change for the Aldercrest property, which would allow the agreement forged by the school district, City of Shoreline, and Aldercrest interest group to move forward to the City Council for final approval.  See article by Janne Kaje.

In the City's Comprehensive Plan, the Aldercrest school site is designated as appropriate for single family homes if the school is torn down. The zoning of the site is R-6 which would permit homes at a density of 6 units an acre. To modify either the Comprehensive Plan designation or zoning requires the City to permit new uses or zoning on the site. This in turn requires an application for a rezone or Comprehensive Plan change.
City staff have issued a 45 page report which can be downloaded in .pdf format. This is the report which the Planning Commission will use in making its decision.

The Aldercrest hearing is scheduled for 7:15 pm.  Planning Commission Meeting starts at 7 pm.  Planning Commission member Janne Kaje is expected to recuse himself from the Aldercrest discussion.
