New Seats on Executive Board

Lakewood, Port Orchard and Redmond

The Executive Board has approved seats on the board for the three newly designated principal cities in the region: Lakewood, Port Orchard and Redmond.

The City of Lakewood achieved principal status due to its growth in the number of workers in the city. Located in Pierce County, Lakewood is home to nearly 60,000 people and 35,000 jobs, 14 parks, and a robust industrial park. It is adjacent to Joint Base Lewis McChord.

The City of Port Orchard became a principal city due to its population growth and size relative to other cities in Kitsap County. Port Orchard is a waterfront community that incorporated in 1890 and is home to the Kitsap County seat.

The City of Redmond is now a principal city also due to its number of workers. Redmond is a center for technology including campuses for Microsoft, Nintendo, and AT&T.

Each of these cities will have a representative on PSRC’s Executive Board beginning February  27th.

The Executive Board generally meets the fourth Thursday of each month and serves as the PSRC’s governing board between annual meetings of the General Assembly.
