NEXT MONTHLY MEETING: THURSDAY, February 2, 7PM
Check back - Details of the February meeting coming soon!!!
Meetings are held at the North Highline Fire Station (1243 SW 112th Street - parking and entrance in the back of the building)
A new year brings new opportunities. Those opportunities are often hidden in the challenges that stand in the way of a safer, healthier, and more positive future. In North Highline, those challenges include the concentration of poverty, the concentration of marijuana businesses and homelessness
An example is King County’s response to our community’s opposition to a low-barrier, 70 adult homeless shelter in White Center. North Highline’s opposition was heard. King County revised its plan. Instead of a low-barrier shelter, White Center’s old Public Health building will instead become the new home of Mary’s Place Family Shelter and Resource Center. Mary’s Place has an excellent reputation. Many of us believe that what started as a challenge is being transformed into an opportunity for success. Any available updates will be shared at the meeting.
At December’s meeting, the need for more community participation on NHUAC’s board was discussed. We are very pleased to announce that Rich Leibfried and Roslyn Hyde answered our call. Following presentations describing their background and desire to join the council, both received unanimous votes by the current council and were seated on the board. Both Rich and Roslyn bring a wealth of experience and a passion for the greater good for the North Highline community. Please join us in welcoming them at our February meeting.
The Opportunity to Be Informed, Be Involved and Be Heard
Our past influences our present. Together they will impact our
future. The death of King County Deputy Steve Cox on December 2, 2006
was a tremendous loss. At the time of his death, Steve was NHUAC's
president. Although he's been gone for nearly 10 years, NHUAC strives
to apply the lessons of Steve's leadership, life, and legacy for a
safer, healthier, and positive future for North Highline.

We are very fortunate in White Center to have great deputies serving our community from the King County Sheriff's Office. Our White Center Storefront Deputy, Bill Kennamer, has dedicated himself to help keep our community safe. He has gone above and beyond to assist the residents and business owners with their concerns. Deputy Kennamer attends all NHUAC meetings and provides crime stats, updates, and is available to answer any general or specific community concerns. NHUAC meetings are a great opportunity to meet and discuss your concerns with Deputy Kennamer.
At our April 7 meeting we were pleased to host Sarah Dahl, a North Highline Resident who has tirelessly been crusading for improvements and changes to be made at Evergreen Highschool Campus.

The AFIS website is www.kingcounty.gov/afis and includes the annual report, videos, and other information.
KC Metro Zone Boundary Line
The NHUAC has requested that KC Metro review it's policy regarding the
southern Zone Boundary, currently SW Roxbury (SW96th). The northern Zone
Boundary is at 145th North. We have requested that they move the
southern boundary to the Burien Park and Ride (148th SW) which would
make a trip from North Highline to Seattle a one zone ride. Click
