Pacific Highway South Subarea Planning
Beginning in the spring of 2014 the City of Des Moines is embarking on a planning process for the
Pacific Highway South area
around Highline Community College. The objective of Pacific Highway South Subarea Planning process is to transform the South 240th Street/Highline College Node from a lower density, auto-oriented strip development to a mixed use employment/activity center that capitalizes on the opportunities provided by Highline Community College and the multi-million dollar public transportation investments that will be made in this corridor over the next decade in order to foster economic development, increase revenues and job opportunities, and provide more housing choices.
Key outcomes include but are not limited to:
Land uses that increase revenues, job opportunities, and housing choices.
Consistent development standards along the border between Des Moines and Kent.
Land uses and regulations that capitalize on Highline Community College, Rapid Ride and Sound Transit’s Link Extension investments.
Leverage work being completed by others to inform our process.
