Abstract:
Derived from King County comprehensive plan data. The rural towns allow urban land uses in the rural area. They are historic communities that were not incorporated, and subsequent to the Washington State GMA, and the adoption of the King County Urban Growth Boundary, are not eligable to be incorporated.

Why was the data set created?

This layer was created from the comprehensive plan land use layer to allow rural towns to be mapped and labled with their community names


How was the data set created?

  1. From what previous works were the data drawn?

  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?

    Date: 06-Apr-2018 (process 1 of 1)
    The Vashon Town was amended by ORD# 18623 on 2017-12-04 to remove the exclusion for Ober Park. This update removed that exclusion and was aligned for parcel adjustments in Fall City and Snoqualmie Pass.
