Meeting set at Preston on King Conservation District focus

After 15 months working with a specially convened task force and advisory committee, the King Conservation District is in the process of completing a proposed program targeting six essential areas to focus its efforts in the coming years.

Areas such as rural and urban farm plans, the regional food system and small lot forestry are being targeted.

As a special funding district, King Conservation District has legislative authority to propose a per parcel rate to fund its program. This fee is collected through a system of rates and charges and requires approval by the King County Council.

The district is seeking public comment on the draft scoping document, rates and charges prior to finalizing submission of its program of work to the King County Council on August 1.

A local meeting is 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 15, at the Preston Community Center, 8625 310th Ave. S.E., Preston.
