Shoreline Library Board planning for growth as result of rezones

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Shoreline Library Board meeting on Thursday, July 2, 2015 at 6:30-8:00pm, Shoreline Library, 345 NE 175th.

A subcommittee of the Shoreline Library Board is working on the wording of a letter to the King County Library System proposing an increase in library services to accommodate anticipated high density housing resulting from the rezoning of neighborhoods currently served by the two existing libraries.

They are working to understand existing long-range plans, how they as the Library Board and Shoreline libraries (Shoreline and Richmond Beach) fit into the Light Rail subarea planning process, and the most effective way to be involved.

The meetings are open to the public.

Sounds like KCLS is putting the cart before the horse. Why on earth would they be granted any additional funding when nothing has been built or is being built. If anything, they should be planning for a decrease in population to provide services to with the 100+ homes being demolished along I-5.

I agree with @11:01. The Library Board is City-appointed and City-commissioned. This is nothing more than another piece of propaganda aimed at winning community acceptance of the City's rezone scheme.

It sounds like KCLS should have submitted comments to the 185th and 145th light rail stations during the public hearings; that is, if the City had provided them with adequate notice.

Do you think that people that live in apartments don't use libraries? It might be interesting to know if Shoreline has experienced noticeable increase since the large apartment complexes opened in North City...
