Rezone area
note that it changes with every meeting

The Shoreline Planning Commission will meet on Thursday, December 4, 7-9pm City Hall Council Chamber, 17500 Midvale Ave N to discuss the Planned Action Ordinance for the 185th Subarea.

In Planning Speak:
A planned action is a development project whose impacts have been addressed by an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) associated with a plan for a specific geographic area before individual projects are proposed. A planned action involves detailed SEPA review and preparation of EIS documents in conjunction with sub-area plans, consistent with RCW 43.21C.031and WAC 197-11-164 through WAC 197-11-172. Such up-front analysis of impacts and mitigation measures then facilitates environmental review of subsequent individual development projects.
Exhibits include:

Exhibit A- Map of 185th Street Station Planned Action Area (above)
Exhibit B- Planned Action Mitigation Measures (page 24)
Exhibit C- Development Regulations (page 38)

Future Planning Commission meetings:
  • December 4 - Planned action ordinance and development regulations
  • December 18 - Outstanding Issues for Subarea Plan and Planned Action
  • January 15 - Public Hearing on Development Regulations and Zoning for Subarea

Why does the map caption read, "note that it changes with every meeting"? Are we supposed to believe where she stops, nobody knows? Can you say Martha Stewart?

Is a larger, more legible map image possible to post? This is unreadable and difficult to understand where/how it will have impact.

@1:40 You have revealed one of the City's trade secrets: The unreadable map. Notice how Exhibit A could have been a link to a legible map, but wasn't. A legible copy is available on the City's website. See if you can find it.

Not very legible either, but you might be able to enlarge it on your computer screen.

I made a version with bigger print of what's being proposed: https://soundoffshoreline.wordpress.com/

However, it does need to be updated to include this proposed MUR-140 nonsense (Up to 14 stories with developer agreement anywhere in the turquoise zone).
