Action Item: Adoption of Resolution No. 434 - Adopting the 2020-2025 Transportation Improvement Plan

In accordance with state law, the City is required to prepare a six-year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP). This is used to secure federal funding for transportation projects as part of the Statewide TIP. The City’s TIP includes transportation projects, such as road and bridge work, as well as new or enhanced bicycle or pedestrian facilities. Projects and programs of regional significance are also identified.

Discussion Item: Ordinance No. 856 – Amending the Shoreline Master Program Pursuant to the Periodic Review Required by the Shoreline Management Act

The City’s current Shoreline Master Program (SMP) became effective on September 2, 2013. The Shoreline Management Act (SMA) requires cities to regularly update their SMPs. The City of Shoreline is required to update its SMP on or before June 30, 2019, and then once every eight years after the date of approval by the Department of Ecology. The purpose of the statutorily-mandated review is to assure that the City’s SMP complies with the SMA and its implementing guidelines, and to assure consistency of the SMP with the City’s Comprehensive Plan and development regulations, and other local requirements.

Proposed regulatory changes to the SMP fall primarily into two categories: those required by the Department of Ecology to incorporate changes in State guidance, and those recommended by the City, primarily to integrate changes that were adopted through the Critical Areas Ordinance (CAO) in 2015 into the SMP. The City is also proposing changes to the Comprehensive Plan as a result of this Periodic Review.

It is important to note that the public hearing packet was 456 pages long, and this Council packet is even larger due to inclusion of proposed Ordinance No. 856 and the exhibits that outline all of the proposed changes.
