King County Districting Committee reschedules public hearing
October 25, 2011
The panel responsible for redrawing King County Council districts rescheduled a public hearing regarding a proposed map to next month.
King County Districting Committee members planned to meet Oct. 3, but rescheduled the meeting to Nov. 1 to allow residents and city councils more time to review the plan and offer comments.
Citizens can attend the rescheduled hearing at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 1 in the Council Chambers at the King County Courthouse, 516 Third Ave., Seattle.
Residents can also submit comments to the committee at www.kingcounty.gov/operations/districting/testimony until Nov. 1.
In a unanimous decision late last month, committee members agreed to release a final proposal for public comment and review. The plan must be approved by Jan. 15 for the 2012 elections.
The committee’s proposed map keeps Issaquah proper inside Councilwoman Kathy Lambert’s District 3 and rural areas outside city limits in Councilman Reagan Dunn’s District 9.
