Shoreline and Woodway Release Draft Agreement Regarding Point Wells
In order to best represent the needs of our communities, the City of Shoreline and the Town of Woodway have agreed to unify our approach and work together to evaluate and address redevelopment of Point Wells. Earlier this year, both cities entered into mediation to develop an agreement to meet our mutual interests and concerns.
On Monday, Sept. 23, both city councils will review and discuss the proposed agreement at their respective council meetings. We encourage the public to review the agreement and provide comments. Woodway’s meeting will occur at 6:00 p.m. and Shoreline’s will be at 7:00 p.m.
The agreement addresses numerous issues, including levels of service for transportation, annexation of Point Wells, development standards, and environmental considerations. We anticipate a final agreement will resolve existing areas of conflict between our two cities to the benefit of both communities and our taxpayers.
Although we are committed to resolving these issues in a collaborative manner, Point Wells is in unincorporated Snohomish County and BSRE’s Urban Center permit application is being processed by Snohomish County. Neither Shoreline nor Woodway are in control of the review and approval process. We also note a court recently ruled BSRE has until mid-December to attempt to correct deficiencies to their Urban Center permit application.
