A Public Meeting to discuss plans to open a sanctioned homeless encampment at Oasis Home Church will be this Sunday, Nov. 5, 2023, starting at 1 p.m. at the church (map below).

As we previously reported, a new local non-profit called the Burien Community Support Coalition is planning on opening an encampment at the church as soon as Monday, Nov. 6, 2023.

This will be the second public meeting for this proposed encampment, as the first one – held on Sunday, Oct. 29 – did not qualify under RCW 35A.21.360 for a 96-hour notice.

  1. The prospect of another encampment in Burien is of major concern to me as a resident and tax payer in this city for 49 years. There are too many red flag’s associated with this idea. Helping people find appropriate help for their particular issues sounds like a very good idea. Having another encampment does not. Problems in the whole area are escalated. Long-term residents who pay taxes should be considered. It seems they are a very low priority. I vote no encampment. I hope you read this. My faith in our local government has been stretched. Now is a good time to show us you care about our citizens

  2. IS this close to Highline High School? That would be a problem considering the drug issues complicating the unhoused individuals.

  3. Well if go by what people say here on the b-town blog and in some Facebook groups then with the 1000’s of pounds of poop and the million’s of drug used needles on top of all the free ammo these homeless seem to have to shoot and endless amounts of fire arms. Then you have all that stolen property from the homeless from doing all the crimes in white center and burien The security is going to have their hands full then think of trying to tell these people to leave after 90 days .

    But if you look at it with a different approach a few people will have a place to stay for the cold months and yes their might be a trouble maker or two with in the group but most are fine people just trying to get by . If it helps and works great if not then this group will hopefully learn from it and make some changes to there program and try again . I hope this group does things right not try to force their be-leafs on to these people needing help.

  4. None of that happens in these camps.Look up tent cities thoughout our city.And get a better perspective on organization of the homeless people who live in these places
