On April 21st we first reported that the city of Burien was proposing August 18th as the day for the vote on its annexation of the North Highline area, and Monday (May 11th) it was made official by a King County Council confirmation vote.
Burien’s annexation attempts have been going on for several years, and this will give residents of the proposed “Area X” (seen in the map above in yellow) a chance to decide whether they want to officially become Burienites or not.
The proposed North Highline annexation area is bordered on the west by West Seattle, the south by South and SW 128th Streets, Tukwila on the east and a border of South and SW 107th to 116th Streets to the north.
Valuation has been assessed at $1.16 billion dollars, with 1,679 acres and just over 14,000 residents.
It seems Burien wants the better part of the area. Leave the riff-raff to King County. Hopefully Seattle takes over Area Y and improves this area.
