Current King County District 1
In the wake of the 2010 census, the boundaries of the King County Council districts are being redrawn to balance the districts by population.  

Currently, Shoreline and Lake Forest Park are fully within the 1st legislative district, represented by Bob Ferguson.  The 1st district needs to gain population. Population in Shoreline and LFP has remained stable, while other parts of King County have gained population.

Draft Plan 1. Divided by I-5, most of Shoreline in District 4. East SL and LFP in District 1.
The redistricting committee will hold a public hearing in Shoreline on Wednesday, June 29, from 6:30 - 8:30 pm in the Council Chambers of Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline WA 98133.

Draft Plan 2 keeps Shoreline and LFP in the same district 1.
The committee will present the four draft plans, two of which divide Shoreline down the middle along I-5 or Aurora.

Draft Plan 3 splits Shoreline down Aurora with west SL in District 4
Each meeting will feature a short briefing on the draft plans and a chance for you to share your ideas. You can also submit online comments or write to the Districting Committee, 516 Third Avenue, Room 1200, Seattle, WA 98104.

Draft Plan 4 keeps SL and LFP together and goes farther east
The Committee must approve a single final plan by January 15, 2012
