A complete sidewalk network to move pedestrians safely throughout the City has always been a focus for Shoreline and its residents. Recent and current studies help to better define priorities for completing and maintaining this network. New funding sources in addition to grant funded capital projects will move the City further along in the development of our sidewalk network.

Sidewalk Funding

In November 2018, the voters approved a 0.2% increase of the Sales and Use Tax for the construction of new sidewalk with a portion to fund repair for sidewalks. The tax was effective April 1, 2019. As part of the ballot measure, twelve specific locations were identified for new sidewalks. Staff estimates completion of all twelve locations within ten years of inception of this tax. As identified in the ballot measure, bonds will be issued to fund these improvements with the sales and use tax revenue paying for the bonds over a twenty-year period.

In June 2018, the City Council approved an additional $20 annual Vehicle License Fee for sidewalk maintenance and repair. As a result of Initiative I-976 passed by voters in 2019, these fees are no longer being collected and the City is reviewing other revenue sources to fund this program.

The City has been very successful in procuring grant funding for sidewalks and will continue to pursue grants for sidewalk projects, including the Safe Routes to School program.

The City Council has indicated a desire to continue to provide some General Fund support for Sidewalk Projects in the Roads Capital Fund. Council will re-evaluate the demand for this support with each biennial budget process.

Relevant Plans and Policies

There are many City plans and policies that help inform when and where sidewalk projects will be constructed or improved.

Sidewalk Prioritization Plan

In June 2018, the Shoreline City Council adopted a Sidewalk Prioritization Plan for new sidewalks. This was the result of a year-long process working with a Sidewalk Advisory Committee and the community to develop a method of prioritizing new sidewalk projects and to identify possible funding sources.

ADA Transition Plan

The City has evaluated existing sidewalks, curb ramps, and pedestrian crossing facilities as part of its required ADA Transition Plan to make existing sidewalks safe and accessible for all users. Prioritizing existing sidewalk improvements is a part of this plan.

Transportation Master Plan (TMP)

The TMP is the City’s long-range blueprint for travel and mobility describing a vision for all modes of transportation including walking, bicycling, transit, and automobile. Adopted in 2011, the TMP is scheduled to be updated by 2022 to better align the City’s transportations goals, objectives, and policies with the current opportunities and challenges the City faces today and in the near future.
