Dear Friends and Neighbors, 

As we all get ready to celebrate the birth of our great nation this Independence Day weekend, I wanted to share some information on new firework regulations as well as some fun 4th of July events that will be taking place across District 9:

Firework Regulations:

  • King County’s new ban on consumer fireworks in unincorporated areas goes into effect this year. This includes District 9 unincorporated communities of Fairwood, Greater Maple Valley, Enumclaw Plateau, Four Creeks/Tiger Mountain, and the East Renton Highlands.
  • Firework regulations vary city by city, but please note that all cities within District 9 except the cities of Black Diamond and Enumclaw have laws banning the discharge of fireworks within city limits. Go here to read more about their specific regulations
  • If you are setting off your own fireworks, please make safe choices for those around you and be considerate of the impact to your neighborhood. Be aware that bottle rockets, firecrackers and missiles are illegal to buy, sell or discharge under state law. An easy way to make sure you are staying within the law is to purchase fireworks from within the city or other area you’re planning to launch them in.

However you choose to celebrate this year, I hope you enjoy your time with friends and family as we gather to honor our country and remember those who courageously fought, and continue to fight today, for our liberty. 

Wishing you a Happy Fourth of July!
