2017 Planning Commission
Do you want to help plan the future of Shoreline: Serve on the Planning Commission

Does land use planning sound interesting to you? Do you want to help make important decisions affecting our community? Could you see yourself as a Planning Commissioner? 

The City Council will be appointing volunteers to the Planning Commission to serve four-year terms beginning in April 2018. 

The volunteers who serve on the Shoreline Planning Commission provide recommendations to the City Council on land use, growth, and development issues. They are charged with reviewing and providing recommendations regarding amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, development regulations, and major development proposals.

The Commission addresses key questions that affect the quality of life in Shoreline: How should we balance new commercial and residential development with the desire to maintain the character of existing neighborhoods? How do we plan for a future that includes light rail? How can we encourage developers to use green building practices?

No technical background or experience in land use is required – important qualifications are an ability to listen to and work well with others, a willingness to prepare and read staff reports prior to the meetings and a commitment to regular attendance and active participation at the meetings.

Community Service Applications are available on the City's website or at City Hall. Applications are due by 5:00pm on Friday, January 12, 2018, to the City Clerk’s Office on the first floor of City Hall or can be emailed.

More information here or contact Senior Planner Steve Szafran at 206-801-2512.
