Updated: Design workshop Thursday, Oct 9 for 145th St subarea zoning will present three maps

Sunday, October 5, 2014

In June, the City hosted the first series of Design Workshops for the area surrounding a future light rail station north of 145th Street and east of Interstate 5.

Residents and other interested parties brainstormed about the future of their neighborhoods and provided great ideas that evolved into design concepts, and will be analyzed in the coming months as potential zoning scenarios.

On October 9, the City will host a community meeting for the second series of workshops to facilitate additional discussion, show graphic representations for possibilities of how ideas could materialize, and determine the scope of environmental analysis.
  • Learn about the subarea planning process, including which decisions have been made and which will be made between now and next summer.
  • Discuss postential zoning alternawtives and provide comments on the scope of elements to be analyzed through the City's Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), and
  • Consider design and transition standards, and incentives for desired amenities like green building and affordable housing.
Childcare and refreshments provided.

Selection of 145th Light Rail Station Zoning Scenarios to be Presented to the Public at October 9 Design Workshop, Part II for the 145th Street Station Subarea Plan:

The 185th Street Station Subarea Plan page has been updated with maps that show the Preferred Alternative zoning scenario, currently being analyzed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement, and the potential to phase zoning (rather than adopting all at once). The updated page also includes a description of what proposed zoning categories mean with regard to height and allowable uses. 

Council will review comments from the Design Workshop and make a decision on November 10 for the zoning alternatives that will be evaluated as part of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement process. 
If you can’t make the meeting, submit your comments here: Subarea Design Comment Form

The map links are broken.

If the links to the proposed zoning maps worked, people would be able to see just how extreme the rezoning options to high density will be. Anyone who knows about this 145th area and the rezone area at 185th is talking about moving out of the city, whether living in the rezone area or not because the whole city will be hugely impacted. Combine these 2 areas with the changes eventually coming from the Point Wells development in Richmond Beach and realize our city will soon not be recognizable. The reasons why people like Shoreline will be gone. The question is not whether to leave, it's when. Congratulations to the current City staff and electeds for being on the verge of wrecking the whole place.

There's Aurora Square, too: Central Market/Sears/DOT area. Four Urban Villages is not a solution. The City of Shoreline needs to live within its means.
