by Matt Rosenberg April 12th, 2010

BACKGROUND. The community of Shoreline, Wash. developed throughout the 1900s and voted to incorporate in 1995. It has 50,000 residents and is the 15th most populous city in Washington state. The Shoreline City Council at a March 5 and 6, 2010 retreat began to formulate its 2010-2011 goals and work plan, which were subsequently refined at an April 5 study session. Tonight the Council will have an opportunity to vote for approval of the proposed goals and work plan, which would then form the basis for more detailed work plans and the city’s 2011 budget.
