City of Burien Announces First Two Public Annexation Informational Sessions
The City of Burien announced on its website the first two public Informational Sessions in White Center on the proposed Annexation of the rest of North Highline/White Center:
- June 21, 6 p.m.: 3:14 Bakery, 9602 16th Ave. SW
- July 12, 6 p.m.: DubSea Coffee, 9910 8th Ave. SW
The annexation of the rest of North Highline will be on the Nov. 6 ballot, in an election where only residents of the proposed area will be able to vote.
Annexation would increase the population of Burien by about 17,300 and add 3.2 square miles to the City. Burien’s total population would increase to approximately 65,000 residents, making it the 15th largest city in Washington.
If approved, the actual annexation would likely occur in 2013.
