The Seattle City Council’s Regional Development and Sustainability Committee gathered today to discuss annexation, amongst other topics. Above is a photo we took right outside of the Seattle Council chambers after giving individual testimonies regarding annexation. Even though everyone knows that we love White Center, we had to show it too, by wearing our “I Heart White Center” t-shirts in solidarity!

Councilmember Richard Conlin announced a new resolution calling for a decision on annexation by February 2012. The entire City Council will consider this resolution on March 28. You can view today’s committee hearing in full on www.seattlechannel.org.

You can view this hearing at the Seattle Channel by clicking here. We also added a screen shot of Mohammed, 15, speaking at the hearing (see above).

UPDATE, 3/29: At the 3/28 full council hearing, City Council voted to move ahead with making a decision about annexation in February 2012 for a possible vote in November 2012. The Council also agreed to not get in the way of any efforts that Burien may want to make in annexing White Center. You can read yesterday’s resolution here. You can also watch archived video from yesterday here.
