The following items has been added to the agenda for the Shoreline City Council meeting on Monday, September 16, 2019.

The staff report provides the following information regarding Study Item 9(a) Discussing Ordinance No 868

Based on the recent renewal of activity by the State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) to submit a Fircrest Master Development Plan (MDP) that includes
  • the expansion of existing uses on the campus,
  • new uses that would support persons with developmental disabilities, and 
  • the siting of an Essential Public Facility (EPF), 

staff recommends that Council enact a citywide moratorium on the acceptance of permit applications for MDP permits and EPF Special Use Permits (SUPs).

A moratorium will allow staff time to study the current approval criteria for both permit types in relationship to the City’s goals and policies and determine and adopt adequate and relevant processes to best evaluate a plan that includes the siting of an EPF.
