Puget Sound Park No Longer Being Considered For Housing
It was announced Monday that Puget Sound Park, located near SW 126th and First Ave South in White Center, is no longer under consideration as a housing site.
â€œI was pleased to learn today that Puget Sound Park has been removed from consideration as a demonstration project site for King Countyâ€™s Sustainable Communities and Affordable Housing program,” King County Council Chair Dow Constantine said. â€œI support efforts to create needed additional workforce housing in our communities. At the same time, our public parksâ€”both active and passiveâ€”are valuable assets to their surrounding neighborhoods and King County that must be preserved and enhanced whenever possible.â€
Puget Sound Park is located in the North Highline district of unincorporated King County, and will be part of the annexation area for the city of Burien, should the annexation vote be approved this summer.
