King County hosts workshop for unincorporated-area residents
November 22, 2011
King County is hosting workshops throughout the region to collect citizens’ comments about creating community service area boundaries.
The workshop includes a public open house from 6:30-7 p.m. followed by a discussion from 7-8 p.m. The meeting for Issaquah-area residents is Nov. 30 at Hobart Community Church, 27524 S.E. 200th St., Maple Valley.
In a July decision, leaders changed how county government and unincorporated-area residents interact.
The updated framework calls for a single point of contact between residents in each of the community service areas and county government. Unlike the earlier arrangement, the community service areas model is designed to encompass communities not represented by a local unincorporated area council, such as Klahanie and the Snoqualmie Valley.
The proposal raised concerns among the unincorporated area councils — the established liaisons between county government in Seattle and unincorporated-area residents.
