The school district in Shoreline will name a new early learning center after Edwin Pratt, an African-American civil rights leader who was murdered as he answered the door of his Shoreline home in 1969.

It’s all because of the hard work of a 10-year-old fourth grader named Sarah. Her parents asked that only her first name be used to protect her privacy.

As cities like Shoreline prepare for more development around future light-rail stations, there may be an opportunity to use technology to help navigate that growth.

Using an online tool called CityBldr, a group of Shoreline neighbors came together in November to sell their properties as one site to a developer. They were asking for $3.2 million.

A group of neighbors near the future Shoreline light rail station is trying to capitalize on recent rezoning by banding together to sell their homes to a developer as one site.

They're doing it by using CityBldr, an online tool that uses market data and land-use information to help owners see what their property might be worth to developers.
