BREAKING: Annexation Heading Toward Aug. 18th Vote

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.

Or not.

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.

Annexation Gets The Nod From Boundary Review Board

Annexation Gets The Nod From Boundary Review Board

by Gina Bourdage

The Washington State Boundary Review Board for King County met for a Public Hearing last night (Mon. Mar. 30), and gave Burien preliminary approval of its efforts to annex the North Highline neighborhood. Board members heard public and officials representing public groups with interests in the community.

The Board will vote on final approval at their April 16th regular meeting.

“We don’t want to be forgotten. We would like to see the same attention,” said Karen Valloria, President of White Center Community Development Association. Valloria spoke in support of annexing to Burien and expressed concern for the lack of progress on Seattle’s attention to the Northern part of White Center.
