Meet new Storefront Deputy at next NHUAC meeting Thursday night


The next North Highline Unincorporated Council meeting will be this Thursday night, Sept. 3, starting at 7 p.m. at the North Highline Fire Station, located at 1243 SW 112th Street.

On the agenda is news that King County Sheriff’s Office has announced a new storefront Deputy – Bill Kennamer – who will replace Julian Chivington. Kennamer is very familiar with the White Center community, having served as a Metro Transit Deputy for a number of years. Both Deputy Chivington and Kennamer will be at the meeting to provide crime stats as well as information and answer questions regarding general community safety concerns.

Here’s what else to expect (see the full agenda at: northhighlineuac.org):

Cass Turnbull, founder of Plant Amnesty, will be providing information on her efforts to preserve 32 acres of city of Seattle surplus land on Myers Way South (located between White Center and Highland Park – adjacent and south of the Joint Fire Training Facility, and Arrowhead Gardens senior housing). Seattle’s intention is to sell the land for commercial development. The area is steep, with wooded slopes, wetlands and a meadow that could very well be preserved as “Discovery Park South”.

We will also be addressing the issues that seem to continually arise at the White Center Bog/Pond. John Taylor and Ken Gresset from the King County Water and Land Resources Division would like to hear from the community on how this area can be best utilized for community enjoyment.

WHEN: Thursday, Sept 3 at 7 p.m.

WHERE: North Highline Fire Station: 1243 SW 112th Street.
