Shoreline Council seeks volunteers for voters’ pamphlet pro and con committees for potential Shoreline Proposition 1: General Obligation Bonds Parks, Recreation and Open Space Improvements


At their June 24 meeting, the Shoreline City Council indicated they intend to move forward with placing a bond measure for parks, recreation, and open space improvements on the November 5, 2019, general election ballot. (see information here)

The measure could include money for a new community and aquatics center and possibly park improvements. Council is scheduled to make a final decision at their July 29 council meeting.

Accompanying the November ballots will be the King County Voters’ Pamphlet. The pamphlet will include an explanatory statement from the City that states the effect of a bond measure if approved. 

In response will be statements in support and opposition to the ballot measure. 

State law requires the City Council to appoint two committees to draft the pro and con statements. The committees can have no more than three members each; however, the committees may seek advice from any person or persons. The committees will also have an opportunity to write a rebuttal statement to the other side’s statement.

Individuals interested in applying for one of the committee positions can fill out an online application. Applications are due by August 2 at 10:00am. The City Council will review the applications and appoint the committee members at its August 5 business meeting.

To learn more about the requirements for the voter’s pamphlet and the duties of the pro and con committees, review the 2019 Jurisdiction Manual at King County Elections.
