Local planning course talks about land use

On Wednesday, Oct. 14, the City of Shoreline will be having a Short Course on Local Planning, a three-hour public workshop. According to the city website, the course will cover "...the legal basis of planning in Washington State, explains the basics of comprehensive planning and plan implementation, discusses the role of the planning commission, the city council and city staff and how the public can be effectively involved in local planning."

There will also be an update on innovative land use techniques such as form-based codes, subarea plans and design guidelines.

The Short Course is co-sponsored by the Washington State Department of Commerce, the Washington Cities Insurance Authority, and the Planning Association of Washington. It will be held in the City Council Chambers of the new Shoreline City Hall, at 17500 Midvale Avenue N, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The workshop is open to the public and there is no charge to attend.
