The City Council's failure to address in the development code separate fees for parking is what has caused overflow parking issues around the Polaris Apartments at 12th Ave NE & 175th. Now another neighborhood is going to be impacted by a development that does the same. The Council and staff constantly refer to only one part of Vision 2029 (economic development) and ignore all of the rest - which includes protecting the neighborhoods.

A non-refundable "Administrative fee"? There must be some deluxe Administration going on there.... And as someone who walks in the Polaris neighborhood, does the owner of the building have an obligation to patrol the neighborhood for trash? Has anyone asked the dental office next door how they like all the "dog-walking" (crapping) on their lawn?

Get ready people. These are about to start rising up all over Shoreline.

160 units proposed where the Super China Buffet present is located just to the south of US Bank.

I don't understand how the City can be running an EIS for the CRA (for the 160 units and the 330 units where Denny's used to be) separate from the permits for these two projects.

Best of all, the project proposed for Dennys used to be a pond, that became a bog, and now is a flood prone area of Shoreline. The soil is so unstable they couldn't even build the ramp for the Interurban bicycle trail overpass but the planning department took the developer's money in anyway for SEPA and a permit. And why did they do that - because it is revenue for the city, they don't even care if the developer finds out it is unbuildable. That is what happened at Gateway Plaza, the sandy wet soil would not support multi-story residential so we got a very nice, new strip mall instead and the city got to collect boatloads of permit fees.

Check out the linked map folks! This developer doesn't even want to admit the location is Shoreline, they show Green Lake and other Seattle amenities and parks but NOT Shoreline. Additionally, rent for a two bedroom is $2250 a month (which does not include parking, that will cost you as you can see above), that ought to make the folks in the nearby shopping mall, the Scottish Rite Temple, and the neighborhood mighty happy. I can't wait to hear people coming to City Council meetings to complain about their cars being towed away because they parked on private property.

How many "affordable units" are there?

Perhaps the council could hold there annual retreat at the Shoreline Inn and walk a couple of blocks down the street to McDonalds rather than the Cedarbrook resort in Seatac. They could find out what it is like to live in a 450 square foot apartment with the sounds of Aurora in your ears! Oh, I forgot, they just found out that Cedarbrook is run by the same company that handles the space needle and that company just lost an unfair labor practice complaint for not paying minimum wage! The employees at Cedarbrook are appealing the companies refusal to pay the 15.00 an hour minimum wage. How were our council members going to get to SeaTac. Of course, by sound transit, bus rapid transit? No, in a van where the whole council and staff were supposed to have a nice ride together for over an hour and not talk about business. After the meeting they were all going to stay at the resort on the city's dollar! How about a nice picnic on the benches on the interurban trail!

Do you all want to live in a robust community or Detroit? If you live near an urban center you should not be surprised by the urban density near you! Embrace the vibrant Shoreline community or move to Darrington!

To 8:49 - Detroit? Really? Pffffff! We are a vibrant and robust community. Stay out of our business, stay out of Shoreline, if you even are in Shoreline? Why would anyone move to Darrington and contribute to sprawl? Don't be silly!

Guess what @11:40 am - there are quite a few people Shoreline residents who want to move away, sprawl or not. And you might learn to recognize what a rhetorical question is, the write was NOT suggesting people actually move to Darrington, they were being sarcastic.

Shoreline actually is on its way to Detroit land - there is a declining tax base. Casino taxes have cratered. Sales taxes are flat and the business community doesn't want to rent those first floor storefronts in the new developments. The property tax levy lift is up for renewal (and who is going to give the vandals in city hall more money to use against the residents, not I). The city staff and council have proposed giving multi-family developers a permanent (as in forever) property tax exemption (starving the fire department and school district of funds to provide service), and the price of acquiring SPU water has more than tripled -- the city of shoreline has charted a course for financial disaster.

@5:33 am -- Can you explain how providing a property tax exemption affects other taxing districts? I mean, does the city have that authority to affect taxes to school, fire districts? It seems to me that giving a property tax exemption to developers would only affect the city's coffers. Just asking...

@6:39 AM - google is your friend, but what makes you think that a "property tax" exemption only applies to one taxing district? It applies to state, county, school, fire, special purpose districts, and other local governments (like cities):

The City of Shoreline has not engaged the school district or the fire department in their grandiose plans for the Aurora CRA or the 2 light rail stations, much less let them know about their ridiculous proposal to give developers a permanent property tax exemption.

To make it worse, the median income in King County is ridiculously high, the City of Seattle DPD thinks that "affordable" should be set at 40-60% of the median income that now approaches $70,000 (it is not quite there yet). But what does the City of Shoreline use? They use 70-80% and do not audit any compliance on the part of the developer.

The City council allowed this project to proceed on bogus grounds. The Traffic study was completed three years before the project started and was completed on a Holiday weekend. What a way to fleece the public Shoreline City Council!
