The Shoreline Planning Commission meets on Thursday, June 4, 2015 – 7:00pm in the Shoreline City Hall Council Chambers.

Critical Area ordinance update for wetlands and development code amendments are on the agenda. The full packet of background documents prepared by the staff is here.

Not everyone realizes that there are two Paramount Parks in Shoreline. The best known one is the Paramount School Park. Formerly the site of a closed and demolished elementary school (Paramount Park), the land still belongs to the Shoreline School District. Under a joint use agreement, the City has created a large public park on the grounds, with a skateboard park, playground equipment, and walking path.

The other Paramount Park, sometimes called the Paramount Park Open Space, is Shoreline's largest wetland and the headwaters of Thornton Creek. Restored in a citizen-led project in 1997-98, the 10 acre site at 946 NE 147th St, Shoreline, WA 98155 boasts open ponds and shady green spaces. Several trails lead into the Park from the surrounding neighborhood.

Planning Commission meetings are open to the public and include a comment period. Comments are also welcome by email.

For crying out loud! What sorts of anti-environment, pro-development shenanigans are these numbskulls up to now?
