Good News!  It has been a long time coming, but King County is going to do something about stormwater in North Highline.  Water Planner Jessica Engel will discuss the Green Stormwater Infrastructure strategy and ways it can be used to help improve our community.

Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon and Sen. Joe Nguyen will also be joining NHUAC’s last meeting of 2020.  NHUAC has asked them to think about ways to improve the health, lives, and opportunity for our North Highline community.  In 2018, at the county’s annual Town Hall, NHUAC delivered a Petition to King County Executive Dow Constantine and the King County Council.  It started:

(1)        Opportunity gives people access to what they need to succeed.

(2)        According to a 2011 Opportunity Mapping Analysis, White Center is a “low opportunityneighborhood” with “some of the worst health outcomes in King County… ranking number one for diabetesrelated deaths, infant mortality, and heart disease….”  The report also cites “academic achievement and poverty challenges.”  “School poverty has serious implications not just for students, but for districts, communities and the region.”

We, the undersigned:   

Ask King County to conduct a Fair Housing Assessment and Opportunity Analysis of the

 North Highline community as part of White Center’s “community of opportunity” designation.

Unfortunately, King County has not given any indication that it intends to conduct either analysis. We hope that Sen. Nguyen and Rep. Fitzgibbon can help us around this quandary.

NHUAC is always happy to see White Center Storefront Deputy Bill Kennamer, who will be joined by Major Jeffrey Flohr and Community Engagement Specialist Manny Apostle.

Knowledge is power.   Learn, share, and help make North Highline a better place.
