Maintaining Woodinville's Quality of Life May Win The Day Over King County's Growth Targets
Woodinville doesn't want the growth that King County says it should take. According to an article in The Woodinville Weekly, the city council is considering ignoring the King County grow targets as a part of an update to their Comprehensive Plan. The council members acknowledge there will likely be financial impacts if they decide to maintain Woodinville's quality of life over King County's strong-armed growth targets but they are willing to investigate further.
The article further notes that Woodinville is interested in contracting with Kirkland for municipal court and jail services as a cost-saving measure.
