In March of 2023, KCD issued a Request for Proposals for Board Election Zoning. This project will establish three board election zones within KCD’s boundaries. KCD received four responsive proposals by the deadline of April 17th, 2023. After a thorough review and scoring of the proposals, King County GIS Center’s proposal was selected.
King Conservation District seeks an independent consultant or consulting team with geographic information system (GIS) expertise and experience and a demonstrated ability to work effectively in a politically sensitive environment to establish three board election zones within KCD’s boundaries. Based on criteria provided by King Conservation District and following statutory and regulatory requirements, the consultant will draft a zoning report, produce District maps, and provide demographic analysis of the proposed plan.
The deadline for submittal of proposals is April 17th, 2023 by 5pm Pacific Time.
With the adoption of Resolution NO. 22-002 on August 8th, 2022, KCD’s Board of Supervisors resolved to:
- Create three geographical zones for elected board of supervisor elections to ensure representation of all parts of King County: a. Having roughly equal population, and b. Being contiguous, compact and convenient, and c. Following existing natural geographic and political subdivision boundaries; and
- Hire a consultant to develop three zones; and
- Conduct an inclusive community engagement process to receive input and feedback on the zone proposal.
