In 2006 the City adopted the South 154th Street Station Area Action Plan. This plan envisions new commercial and residential development in the area adjacent to Sound Transit's Tukwila International Blvd. (S. 154th St.) Link Light Rail station. The area covered by the Plan is shown on the map on the right.
The South 154th Street Station Area Action Plan seeks to leverage its proximity to the light rail station to develop new business opportunities, new services for SeaTac residents, and new housing opportunities while maintaining the diversity that makes this area a special place. Proximity to the light rail station also provides residents with good access to the regional transit system, reducing their need to rely on the automobile for all of their daily travel needs, so the Plan calls for improvements to the pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure.
In 2007 the City adopted a new chapter in the Zoning Code to implement the Plan, putting in place the regulations to allow the Plan's vision to begin taking shape as new development occurs. Chapter 15.305 of the SeaTac Municipal Code contains the Special Standards for the South 154th Street Station Area. The standards apply to the same area covered by the Plan, shown above.
