King County Annexation Initiative

The King County Annexation Initiative is an effort to promote annexation and incorporation of the largest remaining urban unincorporated areas.  These areas are also referred to as potential annexation areas or PAAs (see map below).  To support annexation or incorporation of the PAAs, the Annexation Initiative provides information to communities on their government options and financial incentives to cites that annex or incorporate.

Learn more about these PAAs and the status and impact of annexation and incorporation.

Click on any of the areas outlined in the map to be directed to the appropriate PAA page.
Goals of the annexation initiative

Preserve the quality of local services to urban commnunities by transferring governance responsibilities to the cities, which have more revenue options available for funding urban local services than does county tax revenues.  Ensure the smooth transition of services from the county to the cities for citizens as well as county employees and departments
