Show up and speak out at the May 2nd City Council meeting. Send in a comment if you can't make it.

Be a part of the formal record to clearly demonstrate that the City is steamrolling over their constituents with density plans that are against the will of the citizen majority. No matter how many people speak out, they're going to do exactly what their pro-development agenda requires.

A few weeks ago, Will Hall was yammering on about how single family homes were "BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT". So I guess that means 80% or so of the City's homes are on his radar. This is the same person who was outed in a public records requests of pushing for the upzone "to give the development community certainty," yet his formal comments at the hearings were different. The push was to give "property owners certainty." Well, where were they? They weren't at the meetings or the hearings, which leads one to the conclusion that they don't exist.

What happened on March 16th of last year will not be forgotten anytime soon. This next election should be very telling and I'm guessing the voter turnout is going to be impressive.

Kiss your parks goodbye. Get out and enjoy them while you still can.

Can Mix-Use Residential (MUR-70, MUR-45, MUR-35) have businesses on the first floor? Why do so many apartment buildings in Shoreline have no business areas on the first floor? (For instance, the ugly Artiste Apartments across from Home Depot.)

If we are not requiring developers to create business spaces, where will future businesses go? I mean its normal for folks to grab coffee and breakfast sandwich before onboarding the light rail.

Commercial space is not a requirement. Often brand new retail space is too expensive for the unique sorts of businesses that Shoreliners want. Look at the vacant first floor spaces at Echo Lake / Blakely. No restaurants or coffee shops, I'm afraid. The station areas are just going to end up being a bunch of drycleaners and boring chain eateries with the corporate backing that can afford to lease such spaces.

It's a shame that the plan wasn't geared toward converting existing homes into restaurants and such with more moderate density. The City was so busy shoving the massive density plans down our throats that now, it looks like the stations won't even have restrooms on site.

Word has it that the City is starting to push for an even bigger levy lid lift for this upcoming election. November should be a very telling time. The combination of that with Council Member positions up by those who have made some extremely unpopular decisions and are most likely going to do the same with the 145th subarea... Should be interesting!

I don't understand above folks. What's wrong with this development? It's close to the light rail station, within walking distance. I would definitely be worried about clearing parks for development but it doesn't look like it's doing that. So, what's the complaints about?
