Cottage housing

The Shoreline Planning Commission will convene on Thursday November 17, 2022 at 7pm to hear a summary of the public engagement process regarding cottage housing.

Cottage housing is a group of one to one and a half story detached structures arranged around a shared court or open space area that is visible from the street. 

A consultant is compiling all of the feedback city staff received from July to October from surveys, focus groups and the open house and identifying major themes which will be presented to Planning Commission. 

At this meeting city staff will ask the Planning Commission for initial guidance on the cottage code including the type of review process and what development standards the code should focus on. After the meeting, draft code writing will begin.

Spring of 2023, the draft will be ready for public view

The most recent public outreach was a cottage housing virtual open house on October 5, 2022. The presentation has been posted online along with a question and answer sheet from the open house, addressing zoning, sustainability, safety, traffic, foreign investors, and other forms of housing.

Other materials are available on the city's cottage housing website:
