  • 2010-2015 Environmental Health Services Strategic & Operational Plan
    There are new challenges in environmental health, new initiatives and research findings that drive policy changes, and new leadership at the King County Executive office. Our strategic and operational plan incorporates these, the King County Strategic Plan, and Public Health's Operational Master Plan. Our intent is a visioning into the future so we can achieve sustainably healthy environments for all residents on King County, passing historic barriers of race and economics.
