Keith agrees with the majority of residents living in the light rail station planning areas–we only get one chance to do this, and we should do it right. We need to make sure we have enough land available to accommodate future housing needs — and, where possible, that land should be adjacent to high-capacity transit. But we can do that without adversely affecting neighborhoods by proceeding slowly and cautiously. Keith has worked to ensure that any upzones are reasonably sized and to make sure that they respect neighborhood character.
Keith is committed to making sure that any upzones include affordable housing protections, safeguard our environment, and, most importantly, are right-sized for Shoreline and protect our neighborhoods.
