MONTHLY MEETING: THURSDAY, December 1, 7PM
Where: North Highline Fire Station (1243 SW 112th Street) parking and entrance in the back of the station.
Please join North Highline's volunteer community council at our
December 1st meeting.
NHUAC aims to add opportunity to our community's equation:
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.
The King County Sheriff's Office continues to partner with us toward our goals. Bill Kennamer, our White Center Storefront Deputy, will provide us, once again, with news and statistics from KCSO.
Betsy Howe, of Citizens Opposed to Onsite Septic System Management Washington, will tell us about COOM WA’s success in tabling King County’s “Turd Tax" on septic systems and its ongoing efforts.
King County’s plan to put a low-barrier homeless shelter for 70 adults in the old Public Health Building will be updated by a representative of King County's Department of Community and Human Services.
Like homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse are regional problems that hit close to home. Last month, students from Cascade Middle School’s Prevention Team shared their concerns about the location of King County’s proposed low-barrier homeless shelter in a residential area, next door to a park, and near three schools. This month, Coalition for Drug Free Youth will provide us the opportunity to participate in a survey about our perceptions of drug and alcohol use and abuse among our youth.
We’ll close with a time to share memories and thoughts about community hero, Steve Cox.
See you Thursday, December 1st at 7 PM –
Bring a Friend!

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

make a trip from North Highline to Seattle a one zone ride. Click
