Notes from Shoreline City Council meeting 9-24-18

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

2018 Shoreline City Council
Mayor Hall opened the meeting at 7:00pm. Councilmember McConnell was not present for personal reasons and was excused.

The City Manager’s report stated Saturday's City Welcoming Event was well attended and Sunday’s Under Our Skin discussion on race and inclusion will be repeated on December 1st. 

Upcoming events include the 175th Street Pavement meeting and the PRCS/Trees meeting both on September 27th, and a Sound Transit community meeting on October 17th. Details are available on the City’s website.

The Agenda and Consent Calendars were approved unanimously. There were no public comments.

Two Action Items were on the Agenda. Both had been Discussion items at the September 10, 2018 council meeting. Prior to each each discussion, Councilmembers were reminded to reveal any ex parte communications.

Adopting Ordinance No.836 - Rezone at 922 N 200th Street

This involves changing the zoning from R12 to R24. Since there were no issues brought up at the 9/10 meeting, a very brief Staff report summarized the rezone. After noting the revised zoning was consistent with adjacent properties, the action was adopted unanimously.

Adopting Ordinance No. 837 - Rezone at 17127 and 17201 15th Avenue NE and 17414 and 17062 12th Avenue NE

This proposal would change zoning from high density residential (R24, R28) to Community Business (CB), a commercial zone. If a rezone is granted, the Applicant currently intends to redevelop portions of the area to accommodate senior housing, assisted living, and nursing care, which would be allowed in the CB zone. 

Zoning changes do not require that specific plans for the properties be identified. This ordinance was the subject of several questions by Council at the 9/10 meeting. The Staff presentation was a quick summary of the 30 page Staff Report, including attachments, that responded to the questions. Some Councilmembers still had concerns about traffic interruption on 15th, and the transition between residential and potential 60’ commercial buildings. The action was passed 4 to 2.

The agenda was completed, and the meeting was adjourned at 7:36 pm.
