What happened at the North Highline Unincorporated Area Council meeting last night

For the first time in a few months, we were unable to send a White Center Now rep to cover North Highline Unincorporated Area Council‘s regular meeting last night. We asked council member Heidi Johnson if she could share highlights, and we are grateful to her for agreeing to share a few notes:

KC Roads department came and gave a presentation on neighborhood traffic safety on increasing traffic safety in residential areas of unincorporated King County, passed out brochures on the radar/reader board project & working with citizens to improve traffic safety.

They gave a presentation on removing the parking spaces located on the south side of Roxbury. After reviewing the collision data compiled for that particular area of Roxbury, it was determined that it is definitely a safety issue to allow those parking spaces to remain.

Roads stated that their next step is to talk to the business owners in that area about the parking spaces. They tried to negotiate with Seattle to do the same on the north side of Roxbury but the City of Seattle declined to remove their parking spaces at this time.

KC Human Resources gave a presentation about their budget and how funding was dispersed throughout their many programs. They passed out brochures for building vital communities, families, and individuals, a brochure on their services that are available, and a brochure on advisory council’s for their programs. They have openings on their advisory councils for community participation and input on their programs. KC Human Resource Department contact info: www.kingcounty.gov/dchs or 206-263-9100

We also asked if there’s any room left at the Steve Cox Memorial Park fundraising dinner — Heidi says 10 seats remain (as of earlier today, anyway). More information here.
