“Neighbor is not a geographic term.  It is a moral concept.”  – Rabbi Joachim Prinz

“Poverty is not an accident.  Like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions of human-beings.”  -Nelson Mandela

Have you any idea how many kids it takes to turn off one light in the kitchen? Three. It takes one to say, “What light?” and two more to say, “I didn’t turn it on.”  – Erma Bombeck

Some thoughts to ponder before NHUAC’s April 7th meeting where we’ll learn more about the county’s vision for our community, a/ka the North Highline Subarea Plan. We’ll be joined once again by Jacqueline Reid, of King County’s Department of Local Services (DLS).  She will share the recommendations of Executive Dow Constantine. His proposal went to  the King County Council last week for discussion. deliberation, finalization, and ultimately a vote.  Councilman Joe McDermott, Fire Chief Mike Marrs and Deputy Bill Kennamer will also join the discussion.

According to a 2011 Opportunity Mapping Analysis, White Center is a “low opportunity neighborhood” with “some of the worst health outcomes in King County… ranking number one for diabetes-related 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.”

How will the Subarea Plan improve life in our neighborhood? In November of 2020, NHUAC was joined by David Goodman who shared some data the county had compiled from and about our community.  David is gone, but his presentation is worth reviewing.

                                Knowledge is power.

Learn, share, and help make North Highline a healthier community.
