City Council to start aquatics center design and study funding for new sidewalks

Sunday, June 17, 2018

The Shoreline City Council meets on Monday evening at 7pm in the Council Chamber at City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, 98133.

They will vote to authorize a firm to do the site design for the Community and Aquatics Center.

A large portion of the meeting will be devoted to discussing policy decisions relating to a potential ballot measure for a 0.2 Percent Sales and Use Tax to "Expand, Preserve, Maintain and Operate the Transportation Infrastructure of the City of Shoreline, Including Funding for Sidewalk Expansion, Repairs and Retrofits".

The full agenda with links to the staff reports is here.

As a taxpayer, I'd like it if our city would give up on taking care of plants in the middle of Aurora avenue, filled in the beds, and used the saved money to pay for sidewalks. It would be a small part of the overall cost, but it would help eliminate unnecessary spending. We don't need plantings in the middle of Aurora.

Or let some natural grass grow - I have to say it is still weird to see the large swaths of mowed grass along the trail south of 185th - maybe use the space for pop-up art shows or food trucks or something interesting?

Pave it over with concrete - an urbanists dream!
