Healthcare and housing top the agenda for Sept. 5 NHUAC meeting

Information from North Highline Unincorporated Area Council

Please join the North Highline Unincorporated Area Council on Thursday, Sept 5, 7pm (North Highline Fire Station, 1243 112th Street, SW) for two very important presentations.

As previously noted we will be hosting representatives from Public Health who will provide information about eligibility for Medicaid and the Health Benefit Exchange. This is a great opportunity to get information about the new health care laws that go into effect January 1, 2014, with enrollment starting October 1, 2013.

We are also pleased to be hosting Zachary Howard, Assistant Planner for the Puget Sound Health, Equity and Sustainability Toolkit Program. Mr. Howard will present information regarding housing affordability, economic opportunity, land use and environmental justice as it relates to the Puget Sound Region and specifically to the unincorporated North Highline community (White Center, Boulevard Park, Top Hat Glendale, Beverly Park). There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion.

Chris Stripinis, Infrastructure Committee Chair for the Westwood/Roxhill/Arbor Heights Community Council will discuss the joint community proposal the council has been working on related to traffic calming issues on Roxbury.

As always, BJ Myers, White Center Storefront Deputy will be on hand to answer questions regarding community safety issues.

There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion.

All are welcome –
