City council and planning commission to consider a phased in zoning plan for 185th subarea

Sunday, September 28, 2014

The Shoreline City Council and the Planning Commission will hold a joint dinner meeting on Monday, September 29, at 5.45pm to discuss options for a phased in zoning approach for the 185th subarea.

The original plans recommended by the Planning Commission and approved by the City Council called for the zoning to be changed all at once, for a large area of Echo Lake, North City, and a slightly smaller section of Meridian Park, even though these areas were not expected to build out for 100 years.

A phased-in approach would take into account when the City’s development needs and market demands were ready for change.

Dinner meetings are held on the 3rd floor in conference room 303 at 5:45pm. They are open to the public, but not recorded or streamed live, as council meetings are. They are informal meetings or workshops and no decisions are made.

The key part of this story is: “even though these areas were not expected to build out for 100 years.” However, there will be development – in dribs and drabs. A three-story apartment building here, a four-story condo there. Along with these bits and pieces comes the accompanying traffic. Hopefully, millenials will be able to afford to move in – for they, as a collective group, drive less and own fewer cars!
