Project updates

The King County Executive included in his September 2017 budget request and Council approved funding for a regional team to increase enforcement of weapons surrender orders in domestic violence cases. This team was a key recommendation of the multiagency Domestic Violence Protection Order and Orders to Surrender Weapons Work Group for which Cedar River Group served as facilitator.

The King County Executive also sent to County Council in September 2017 a change in Metro’s fares to a flat $2.75 for adults. This was a recommendation of the ORCA Fare Policy Forum, which Cedar River Group facilitated.

Iconic Pacific Tower on Beacon Hill has been rededicated as a center for innovation in community health. Cedar River Group was the effort’s partnership builder, helping raise $55 million from state, local and philanthropic sources for the necessary capital improvements.
