Solicitors in Shoreline
Recently there has been a flurry of activity with solicitors getting licensed to go door-to-door in Shoreline. It’s important to know that licensed solicitors are legal in Shoreline. Please post crime prevention tips for citizens to protect themselves against unscrupulous solicitors. See Tips for more information.
Background: The City of Shoreline has a municipal ordinance regulating the activities of sales people and solicitors (Shoreline Municipal Code 5.07). It requires for-profit solicitors and “Master Solicitors” who employ them to file a written application for a license with the Shoreline City Clerk and carry the license at all times when soliciting or canvassing. Solicitors must produce the license when requested by persons being solicited, police or City officials. Read More ....
Interurban Trail Mile
Mile Markers for the Interurban Trail are ready for action! Thanks to a generous award from CleanScapes with additional support from the City’s Trail Corridor fund, mile markers are being placed at quarter-mile intervals along the entire 3 ¼ mile length of the trail through Shoreline. These markers will add visual interest as well as distance incentives to both bikers and walkers who frequent the trail. Information plaques will be installed at each end of Shoreline’s trail section.
For more information please contact Ros Bird, City of Shoreline Public Art Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or
Is located in the center of the City of Shoreline, close to the Exits and Entrances to I-5. It covers the area from North 160th Street to North 185th and from Aurora Ave North to the Freeway. This beautiful neighborhood has 5 parks. The largest one in the neighborhood is Ronald Bog Park, home of the Ponies. It houses an amazing amount of wildlife that is easily visible all around. You can view all kinds of ducks, at least one King Fisher to scold you, Cormorants, Turtles and Bull frogs. . Sometimes you see neighbors fishing too. There is also a very ambitious Beaver who you usually don’t see but can view his work. (Trees fallen into the water where he wants them.)
This Park also houses two Rotary projects: a Kiosk & guide for the evergreen trees brought in and planted by the Rotary as well as a large covered shelter next to the waters edge. You will also be able to view art sculptures and an occasional bench for relaxing.
The Meridian Park Neighborhood Association holds meetings September through June once a month on the 2nd Thursday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, in the schools Library. They also put out a newsletter, which you can request to receive by mail or email during the same months. You are invited to attend those meeting and any events. Call Gretchen at (206) 364-2821 or email: email@example.com
In addition to the meetings the Neighborhood Association teams up with members of the PTSA and the Aurora Nazarene Church to clean up the school grounds. There may be other collaborative projects in the future. Everyone is welcome.
Catastrophes can happen at any time. Preparing for three days will help you make it through many of the disasters you’ll face in the Puget Sound region—including major storms and even small earthquakes.
However, to make it through a major catastrophe—like Hurricane Katrina or the earthquake and tsunami in Japan—you’ll need to be prepared for longer—at least 7 to 10 days.
Local agencies across Puget Sound are teaming up to share information and encourage residents to prepare for catastrophic events with a regional campaign,
SummerSet Arts Festival celebrates Ronald Bog in style
On Saturday afternoon, September 15th, hundreds of people poured into Ronald Bog Park on N 175th St. After parking at Meridian Park Elementary, festival attendees walked the partial block to the park entrance and were delighted by the sight of a colorful giant floating turtle clambering off a dock, amazed by fluttering iridescent wings affixed to the Shoreline Ponies sculpture, and charmed by the brightly striped tree socks made by local knitters . . .
Door to Door Alarm Salesman Is Not From The City of Shoreline
The City has received several reports of an individual going door-to-door selling alarm systems and claiming to be from the City of Shoreline’s Emergency Management Office. This individual is NOT from the City of Shoreline. The City of Shoreline does not hire solicitors or endorse products.
Council recently designated the Aurora Square area as a Community Renewal Area. The next step is to create a plan that guides the City’s collaboration with private property owners, investors, and community partners so that everyone can enjoy a renewed Aurora Square.
Once the alignment and the station areas have been determined, Sound Transit will narrow its focus to just the designated light rail corridor and stations. At the same time, the City will begin a new planning effort in anticipation of light rail serving Shoreline.

Energy Assistance Programs
People who are having financial problems paying for their energy cost may qualify for assistance through the federal energy assistance program that is administered by Hopelink. The federal program is seasonal and runs from November to approximately May of each year. Access is only by phone appointment. See below for number to call. Approved funds are paid to the energy vendor, not to the applicant. Hopelink has two programs that may help with your energy bills this year: the Low Income Home Energy Assistance program (LIHEAP) and PSE HELP. LIHEAP is a federally funded grant program that can help pay for the following types of primary heat sources: oil, gas, electricity, kerosene, propane or wood. The season for LIHEAP begins in November, or as funds become available. The PSE HELP grant program is available to Puget Sound Energy electric and/or gas customers only. The program assists with home energy costs. The season for PSE HELP begins in October, based on available funding.
