The agenda for the Monday, January 14, 2019 City Council Meeting includes one Action Item and two Study Items.

Action Item: Authorizing the City Manager to Award an Option to Lease the City Owned 198th Property to Community Psychiatric Clinic for Affordable Housing and Supportive Services

This land at 198th and Aurora was purchased for the Aurora Corridor Project and used as a staging area. The property is no longer needed by the City. The subject 99-year lease at $1.00/year will allow the City owned parcels to be used for development and operation of affordable housing and supportive services.

Community Psychiatric Clinic (CPC) will be the housing owner and service provider, and Catholic Housing Services (CHS) will serve as CPC’s development consultant. Staff recommends that the City Council move to authorize the City Manager to award this option.

Study Item 1: Discussion of Ordinance No. 839 – Amending the Shoreline Municipal Code to Expand the Deep Green Incentive Program (DGIP)

As part of the City’s Climate Action Plan adopted in 2013, Council created a mandate that all new development in the Mixed-Use Residential (MUR) zones surrounding future light rail stations must meet a 4-Star level of “Built Green” certification. City staff and the Planning Commission studied expanding green building regulations to commercial zoning. The Planning Commission and staff recommendation has evolved to now consider expanding the green building incentive DGIP rather than the mandate.

Study Item 2: Discussion of Resolution No. 433 - Revising the Employee Handbook

The update of the Standby and Callback Policy necessitates nominal amendments to the Employee Handbook to maintain consistency between the Handbook (last updated 2017) and the 2018 updated Policy.
