Special Meeting! 7 PM October 20th, McMurray Middle School
Attending: John Starbard, DPER Director, Rep. Joe McDermott

By invitation of the VMICC, members of the King County comprehensive plan development staff will be joining us on Monday, October 20 at 7 PM to discuss our existing town plan and how we can update it for presentation to the King County Council for entry into the 2016 comprehensive plan. Our King County government has demonstrated an interest in keeping the concept of local plans part of the comprehensive plan, and has even commissioned staffers to assist one of our sister communities, Skyway/West Hill in their current plan development. It is the intention of the VMICC to seek similar assistance with developing an update to our current plan, and this meeting will be the first major step in that direction.

The meeting will serve two purposes:

First, to provide information to common questions regarding the comp plan and town plan. Questions like, why do we need a town plan? What elements make up such a plan? Could we have an island plan? How do we update our plan? These and any other questions you may have will be answered by experts.

Second, the meeting will serve as a launching point for what we hope will be a new kind of town plan committee, one tasked not merely with developing a town plan, but planning an engagement process to use current communications technology like social media and polling sites to engage a representative cross section of Vashon-Maury Island residents. Our goal is that many residents take part in at least some portion of the process, and that the results represent their input and wishes.

We are reaching out to many individuals and groups to attend and help us get this important process started, and to begin attracting broad range of constituencies to be represented in the final product. Please join us on October the 20th at 7 PM, McMurray multipurpose room. And if you know of others who might be interested, please invite them.

We will also be joined by Representative Joe McDermott to discuss KC budgeting issues. Please bring your questions and get involved.
