As many of you may or may not know, Shoreline, WA is one of the proposed sites for a 640-bed municipal jail facility. The site is located at 2545 NE 200th St which lies on the Northeast side of Shoreline bordering Lake Forest Park.
In November, we posted the news release from the city identifying the six sites. Since then, there have been public forums and meetings held by both the city and the surrounding neighborhoods. If you would like to get involved, review tapes of the public forums, or simply find out more information about the proposed site you can visit http://www.necmunicipaljail.org/ .
You can also read more and submit written comments regarding the EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) by visiting these links;http://www.necmunicipaljail.org/SEPA.htm and http://www.necmunicipaljail.org/docs/NEC_2008_EIS_Scoping_Notice.pdf.
Please note the following notice received from a local resident:
Dear Neighbors, Friends and Shoreline residents,
