Your Update on What's Happening at the King County Council  

Dear Friends and Neighbors,  

There are many community grant opportunities that are offered through King County. It is important to me to make sure you all are aware of these opportunities as applications open so we can work together to invest these tax dollars back into our neighborhoods.

One of these grant programs that I will highlight today is the County’s Participatory Budget. In June of 2021, King County Local Services established the Community Investment Budget Committee (CIBC) to involve community members to democratically and directly decide how County funds are spent, known as the Participatory Budget process. During their most recent deliberations, Local Services and CIBC reached out to urban unincorporated communities to find out what projects were of top priority.

This year, for CIBC's inaugural investments, I am proud to announce that there were several District 9 projects that were selected to be funded. These projects include:

  • Splash Pad/Cooling Center at Petrovitsky Park ($720,000)
  • Revive our Basketball Court at Maplewood Park ($100,000)
  • Home Repair Fund in east Renton ($100,000)
  • Cemetery Pond: Acquisition – Critical Green Infrastructure in east Renton ($50,000)
  • Cemetery Pond and Wetland: Upgrade Public Access and Amenities in east Renton ($35,000)

Congratulations to the communities that these projects were selected in!

To stay up to date on grant opportunities through the County, and to alert your friends and families in District 9 of opportunities, read these weekly emails or reach out by emailing me at

Wishing you all the best,
