Agenda for Shoreline council meeting October 14, 2019

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

Shoreline City Hall and Council Chamber
The October 14, 2019 Shoreline City Council meeting includes two discussion items: 

8(a) Discussing the King County Metro North Link Connections Mobility Project

The King County Council adopted its long-range plan for transit service, entitled Metro Connects, on January 23, 2017. Metro Connects plans for a significant increase of bus service in the City of Shoreline, identifying bus routes and levels of service in Shoreline based on the years 2025 and 2040. 

Metro Connects was endorsed by the Shoreline City Council on May 9, 2016. The Project is a collaborative effort between King County Metro, Community Transit, the University of Washington, and the Seattle Department ofTransportation, working with affected jurisdictions such as the City of Shoreline. This is Phase 2 (mid-October to December 2019). During this phase, King County Metro will develop and ask for more community feedback on draft transit service network concepts.

8(b) Discussing Resolution No. 448 and Ordinance No. 869 – Declaring the City’s Intent and Authorizing the Sales Tax Credit for Affordable and Supportive Housing as Authorized by SHB 1406

Washington State Substitute House Bill (SHB) 1406, which was adopted during this past legislative session, authorizes the governing body of a county or city to impose a local sales tax, credited against the state sales tax, for affordable and supportive housing.

Council will discuss proposed Resolution No. 448, which would declare the City’s intent to receive the affordable housing sales tax credit, and proposed Ordinance No. 869, which would authorize the collection of the sales tax credit

This local sales tax authority is a credit against the state sales tax, so it does not increase the sales tax for the consumer.

Proposed Resolution No. 448 and proposed Ordinance No. 869 are currently scheduled for adoption on the October 28, 2019 Council meeting.
