Report from 145th Street Station Citizens Committee

From committee co-chair Robin Lombard

145th Corridor Study

Last year the City of Shoreline started to study how to improve 145th Street. Details here. The city has been working with a Citizen’s Advisory Task Force (CATF) – people who represent you in this process.

Discussion at the meeting on Thursday included:

  • The need for more direct citizen input in the study
  • Integration of the ST3 proposal in the planning for 145th
  • Communications on potential property acquisition
  • A decision to send a feedback letter to the task force about the communications on property acquisition (next two weeks)
  • A decision to send a letter to Council with input on the 145th Corridor Study alternatives (first or second week of January)
There is no updated information on the 145th Corridor study page since Oct 12. However, please note the following:
You can email your representative on the Citizen’s Advisory Task Force (CATF) and tell them what you want/don’t want: List of CATF Members (includes email addresses)

145th Street Station Subarea Plan

We’ve known since March 2015 that the City Council is waiting for the 145th Corridor Study to move forward on the 145th Station Subarea Plan and re-zone. There is a bit more detail in the Agenda for the City’s Special Meeting Monday, Oct 26 with Mountlake Terrace:
  • Adoption of the 145th Light Rail Station Subarea Plan is projected to happen in September 2016 (page 2)
  • Detail steps in the process from the 145th Corridor Study to the adoption of the Subarea plan by Council appear on page 6

Why does a single property owner, Lakeside School, get its own representative on the CATF? Individual Shoreline and Seattle 145th corridor property owners do not get individual representation. Is the City Council saying that Lakeside School is more important and holds more influence than residential property owners? None of the CATF members are residential property owners along 145th St.
