Local Services

Participatory Budgeting Steering Committee 2023-24
Local Services staff members with members of the 2023-24 Participatory Budgeting Steering Committee. This program empowers members of unincorporated communities to decide how government funds will be spent in their neighborhoods.

If you live or do business in King County and outside city limits, King County is your local government.

The county maintains county roads and bridges, issues permits, manages land use planning, and provides many other services to unincorporated areas—which are grouped into seven Community Service Areas.

King County Local Services is here to help connect you with these services. Our goal is to make it easy for you to find what you need, do what you want to do, and tell us what you think.
