NEW — 6 a.m. Nov. 29, 2012
Residents in unincorporated areas can meet leaders and discuss plans for upcoming projects at a King County open house soon.
The event is for residents in Four Creeks/Tiger Mountain Community Service Area — a rural stretch bordered by Issaquah and Interstate 90 on the north and Renton to the west.
The open house offers the public a chance to offer feedback on the community service program and proposed work plans for next year. Participants can discuss community priorities, speak with program staff members, and learn about county programs and services.
Deputy County Executive Fred Jarrett and County Councilman Reagan Dunn plan to attend.
The open house is scheduled for 7-9 p.m. Dec. 11 at Evergreen Community Church, 20112 S.E. 152nd St.
The county is hosting open houses in other community service areas, including the Snoqualmie Valley.
In July, County Executive Dow Constantine proposed a plan to divide the county’s unincorporated areas into seven community service areas.
The proposal combined Tiger Mountain and the area encompassed by the existing Four Creeks Unincorporated Area.
The most recent census data identified 16,500 residents in the Four Creeks Unincorporated Area. The existing area encompasses Maple Hills, May Valley, Mirrormont and other communities in a 38-square-mile stretch between Issaquah and Renton.
