Monday, May 20, 2019

Houses in this vicinity are part of the
"Shoreline Park Addition" - nothing to
do with the actual Shoreline Park by the
Shoreline swimming pool.
Public Hearing Related to the Land Covenant Preservation and Transparency Act

Sound Transit will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 6:00pm at Shoreline Community College located at 16101 Greenwood Ave. N. Shoreline 98133 in the Small Dining Room in the Pagoda Student Building (PUB #9000).

The public hearing is necessary to comply with the Land Covenant Preservation and Transparency Act.

Sound Transit has acquired certain property and property rights for purposes of locating, operating and maintaining its Link light rail system including the Lynnwood Link Extension (the “Sound Transit Properties”).

Some of the Sound Transit Properties are subject to restrictive covenants and/or plat restrictions that may limit the use of the properties and the ability to proceed with the project. Sound Transit seeks to remove these restrictions as they apply to the Sound Transit Properties.

The intent is to ensure the property that Sound Transit is buying is not adjoined with the restrictive covenants in the various subdivisions, which are typically residential specific uses.

The use restrictions to be removed relate to the following plat/subdivisions in Shoreline and Seattle. Note that the “Shoreline Park” and “Paramount Park” references are the names of the subdivision/plat on record with King County.

I live in the area affected and this is the first I've heard of this hearing. Shouldn't Sound Transit have sent notice to those affected?
