Project updates

The 31-member King County Metro Service Guidelines Task Force, which Cedar River Group facilitated, sent their unanimous consensus recommendations to the County Council and County Executive in late October 2015. The recommendations included: changing Metro’s transit service types; revising the guidelines to better provide social equity and geographic value; expanding alternative services; and expanding partnerships.

Recommendations for increasing affordable housing in Seattle came out in July 2015 from the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda Advisory Committee. Cedar River Group was the facilitator of this 28-member committee appointed by the mayor.
