April 19.Shoreline Customer ResponseTeam.These folks solve your problems. Thanks to an informative presentation by Rob Staveskie we learned when and how to contact this unique team on the broad range of issues they can directly address.  It turns out that very few other cities have such a team. They respond to  calls regarding abandoned vehicles, traffic safety, drainage, potholes, many issues related to code compliance  and enforcement. 

Emergency preparedness meeting. November 15, we enjoyed a substantial presentation by Shoreline's manager of emergency preparedness, Brian Dixon, who explained the many efforts underway in this regard.

 On Tuesday, January 17th, starting at 7pm, we hosted a two-part meeting at the city hall.
PART A – Superintendent Rebecca Miner joined us to discuss the rationale and implications of the upcoming Shoreline Schools $250M Construction Bond. She presented information about the bond, what it will support, and how it will impact taxpayers. This was a great chance to get important information before the vote.
PART B – Another section of the meeting focused on trees in Shoreline - regulations regarding trees on private property, as well as the protection and maintenance of trees throughout Shoreline. Kate Skone, Assistant Planner with the City of Shoreline's Planning and Community Development Division was on hand to present and answer questions. Many citizens are concerned that the large number of new houses being built is eliminating many trees, which are widely regarded as a significant and positive aspect of life in Shoreline.
