County asks for help developing 'strategic plan'

King County is requesting the public's feedback on the role county government should play during the next five years.

King County is developing a countywide Strategic Plan to map out what goals and priorities the county should set and how attention and resources could be allotted to achieve these goals. The public is invited to two meetings to share their vision for the future and help develop a countywide strategic plan that better aligns county functions and services.

Workshops will be held next week on:

Tuesday, July 28 6:30 - 8:00 RiverRock Grill and Ale House  4050 Maple Valley Highway, Renton, WA 98058  

Thursday, July 30  6:30 - 8:00 The Hall at Fauntleroy, Emerald Room 9131 California Ave. S.W.

King County provides regional services to 1.8 million residents in 39 cities, including 340,000 people living in unincorporated areas. Services include Metro transit, public health, wastewater treatment, courts, jails, prosecutors, public defenders, community and social services, the King County International Airport, and local services such as police protection, roads services and garbage collection.
