County Workshop to Create New Service Boundaries for Unincorporated Areas

The closet meeting for Redmond residents to attend will be in Carnation this Tuesday.

People living in unincorporated Redmond have only two chances left to voice their opinions about the creation of King County’s new community service areas, the county’s new system for representing unincorporated areas.

The closest meeting to Redmond will happen Tuesday evening in Carnation, another meeting will be held Wednesday in Enumclaw.

Previously the county had Unincorporated Area Councils, or UACs. , which were previously allotted $10,000 a year, and adopted a new model of interaction between county government and the 285,000 people living outside the boundaries of the county’s 39 cities.

New ‘framework’

The UACs represented about 96,110 people, or 33 percent of the residents in unincorporated King County. The new legislation forms new unincorporated Community Service Areas, or CSAs, to serve all of the unincorporated area residents.

“Under the framework, a single point of contact will hold meetings with service areas to develop work programs and provide regular opportunities for community-based organizations, such as Unincorporated Area Councils (UACs), to meet and work with King County officials,” the county council said in a statement.

The move also is intended to save the county money. For more information, contact Marissa Alegria at Marissa.Alegria@kingcounty.gov or Bong StoDomingo at Bong.StoDomingo@kingcounty.gov
