City of Shoreline
Commercial Density Standards, Comprehensive Plan Update 2012
BERK completed commercial density, land use policy, and environmental review recommendations over a two-month period to support the City’s Comprehensive Plan Update adopted in December 2012. A central aspect of the study was the evaluation of the City of Shoreline’s consolidation and amendment of its mixed-use commercial zones, an important tool in the City’s quest to meet its Vision 2029 principles of compact mixed-use growth along corridors. Our Commercial Density Analysis led to alternative distributions of mixed-use housing growth, which supported analysis of potential transportation impacts and environmental review recommendations.
