Burien annexation of White Center (etc.) gets final Boundary Review Board approval

This was mostly a formality – but nonetheless, it’s a formality worth noting. From the City of Burien’s weekly newsletter, word that the Boundary Review Board finalized its approval of the annexation proposal this week:

Boundary Review Board Gives Annexation Final OK

On Feb. 16, the Washington State Boundary Review Board for King County reached a final decision approving Burien’s annexation request of the North Highline. The next step is for the City Council to pass a resolution confirming the Board’s decision and requesting that King County set an election date, which could be in August or November 2012. The City Council is waiting for the state Legislature to approve a state budget before requesting an election. The Council has indicated it will not proceed with the annexation if the current state tax credit that helps cities provide services to newly annexed areas tax credit is reduced or eliminated from the state budget.

We’re checking to find out where that stands.
