City’s Final Annexation Info Session is Thursday Night at Cascade Middle School
The City of Burien’s next – and final – Annexation Informational Session will be this Thursday night, Oct. 18, starting at 6 p.m. at Cascade Middle School’s cafeteria, located at 11212 10th Ave SW.
This is the city’s final informational session, designed to “inform North Highline residents about the upcoming North Highline annexation measure on the Nov. 6 General Election ballot,” according to an announcement.
City officials will be present to answer any questions.
According to the city’s release:
Only registered voters in the proposed annexation area will vote on whether to become part of the City of Burien. The proposed annexation area includes the unincorporated remainder of North Highline, which takes in White Center, Top Hat, Beverly Park, Glendale, and portions of Boulevard Park, Riverton Heights and Shorewood. If approved by voters, the annexation would likely take effect in spring 2013. Burien annexed the southern section of North Highline in 2010.
If the annexation is successful, Burien would grow in size by 17,300 residents. Its 65,000 residents would make Burien the 15th largest city in Washington.
The Nov. 6 General Election is being conducted entirely by mail. Registered voters will begin receiving ballots in the mail this week.
Ballots can be mailed back and must be postmarked Nov. 6 or earlier.
They can also be deposited in a ballot drop box before 8 pm on Nov. 6; one is located on SW 152nd St. in front Burien Library/City Hall at 400 SW 152nd Street.
