The Shoreline City Council meeting on Monday, November 25, 2019 has one action item and two study items.

Action Item 8(a) Adoption of Ordinance No. 872 – Amending the 2019-2020 Biennial Budget as Amended, According to the Mid-Biennium Budget Modification

Staff recommends that the City Council adopt Ordinance No. 872, as amended November 18, 2019: (i) to increase General Fund appropriations by $7,700, which will be funded with General Fund fund balance, for the development and mailing to all Shoreline households regarding the 2020 Census, and (ii) strike the Non-site Specific Comprehensive Plan or Development Regulation Amendment fee (3.01.010(G)(22)) from the 2020 Fee Schedule, which will have no financial impact on the revenues presented in the 2019-2020 Biennial Budget.

Study Item 9(a) Discussing Ordinance No. 871 – Amending Certain Sections of the Shoreline Development Code to Provide for Townhouse Design Standards

The City has experienced increasing demand for the townhouse housing style since in the 185th and 145th Station Areas in 2015 and 2016. The City’s current design standards for townhouses are better suited for apartment buildings than townhouses. it is important that townhouses are designed to ensure both functional and desirable places to live.

Study Item 9(b) Discussing the 2020 State Legislative Priorities
Council will discuss the upcoming 2020 Legislative Session and the City’s proposed 2020 Legislative Priorities. For 2020, staff proposes the continuation of efforts to secure funding and/or other legislative support for: a bike/pedestrian bridge at N 148th Street; the 145th Street/Interstate-5 interchange; and a Fircrest Campus redevelopment that aligns with City goals.
