BREAKING: Annexation Heading Toward Aug. 18th Vote
The city of Burien announced Tuesday (4/21) that its proposed annexation of the southern part of North Highline will be heading toward a vote of residents this summer, after receiving final approval from the Boundary Review Board last Thursday, April 16th.
The proposed election day for the vote is Tuesday, August 18th, so if you live in the affected area (the yellow “Area X” in the map above), be sure to mark your calendars – this will be your chance to help decide whether Burien annexes your community and becomes your new overlord.
A simple majority is all that’s needed for this to pass, and if approved, the annexation will take effect in early 2010.
For more information, or to determine if you live in the proposed annexation area, visit the City of Burien website at www.burienwa.gov/annexation, or call 206-241-4647.
