The regional Economic Development District (EDD) is the federally designated economic development district for the central Puget Sound region covering King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Its members include representatives from private business, local governments, tribes and trade organizations. The EDD Board meets quarterly, beginning in March, on the first Wednesday of the month from 1-3 p.m.

Legislative Tracking

In December, the EDD Board approved the 2015 State Legislative Recommendations. A legislative committee, formed of members of the EDD Board, meets regularly during the legislative session to review legislation related to the recommendations. Updates are tracked in a weekly status report.


Next Meeting: June 3, 2015 • 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Location: PSRC Board Room
