King County Comprehensive Plan meeting set for White Center in July
This came up at last night’s North Highline Unincorporated Area Council meeting (full report to come), and while nobody had the date handy, we found it online, so in case you’ve been wondering:
The 2020 Public Review Draft of potential amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and associated Development Regulations in the King County Code will be released on July 1, 2019. The following flyer summarizes the list of issues being considered.
Following release, King County is hosting five community meetings during the 30-day public comment period in July. At the meetings, you can learn more about the potential changes and have a chance to talk to staff about what they may mean for your area.
The White Center/North Highline meeting:
Thursday, July 25
6:00 to 8:00 pm
Seola Gardens Community Room
11215 5th Avenue SW

Included in the King County comprehensive plan is a proposal for marijuana legislation which would, if the county follows the 2018 Marijuana Report to the letter, formally limit the number of cannabis retailers allowed in the greater White Center/Top Hat area to 4.
That’s 4 times what you would expect in a population the size of the area given that the state has currently licensed 106 retail stores county-wide (population over 2 million). And so far the county’s regulations have kept all the stores licensed to date, after 5 years of licensing, west of Rainier Avenue.
My question for Dow Constantine, whose staff prepared the report: Why segregate these stores primarily in the unincorporated communities of color?
