There is a brief description of the Community Needs List process that was begun in 2020 and how it is associated with but a separate effort from the Subarea Plan.

  • Subarea-specific policies

The introduction section concludes with an explanation of what equity and social justice mean to King County and that the County is committed to being: 

  • Inclusive and collaborative,
  • Diverse and people focused,
  • Responsive and adaptive,
  • Transparent and accountable,
  • Racially just, and
  • Focused upstream and where needs are greatest.
