    BTB should do a piece on how many mental housing units Navos has for the numerous mental health patients in the area. I can think of four apartment complexes in Burien that are either owned by Navos or who rent out entire apartment space for mental health patients. Also, there are many group homes as well.

    It seems Burien has more than its fair share of BOTH mental health housing as well as Section 8 housing. I wonder if the impacts of these housing units can be quantified (meaning impacts on local services).

      It doesn’t look like they are planning anything different from what already has existed on the campus, just an upgrade to the structures and environment that the kids live in. That type of housing exists almost everywhere throughout the county. Multiple low-income and residential treatment facilities exist in each neighborhood.

        If you take a look at a map of all of the KCHA locations, it appears a disproportionate number of sites were built in areas that were once unincorporated King County. Burien, Federal Way, Seatac, Shoreline, Kenmore, east Hill Kent area, etc. all seem to have more than other cities that were more established. It was likely pretty easy for KCHA to get approval from King County as the area where they were built was unincorporated at that time. Same holds true for all of the multi-family units in these locations as well. Very easy building requirements at the time.
