FCUAC and the organizations it engages with use lots of acronyms. This is a partial list.
ILA – Interlocal Agreement: A formal agreement between public jurisdictions. Examples include Eastside Fire and Rescue is an ILA between three fire districts. FCUAC is advocating for an ILA between King County and Renton to cover the unincorporated urban area on the plateau east of Renton.
PAA – Potential Annexation Area: A area of unincorporated King County that lies within the Urban Growth Boundary that has been formally identified for potential annexation by an individual city. The unincorporated area on the plateau east of Renton is a Renton PAA.
UGB/UGA – Urban Growth Boundary/Urban Growth Area: The boundary is a line and the area is the land inside the boundary. Designated which areas of King County are for urban land use. Unincorporated areas within the UGA are often Potential Annexation Areas.

Four Creeks Unincorporated Area Council is looking for community volunteers to join the council. Contact us via email or stop by our next monthly meeting.

A description of the membership role, along with the appointment procedure can be seen here.
Have an opportunity to help fund the FCUAC or need funding for a community project?
The funding mechanism for the UAC has changed. We are no longer funded by King County directly for our operations. As of June 30, 2013 we received notice from the IRS that we have been approved as a tax exempt 501 (c) (3) non profit organization. This allows us to receive tax deductible Bequests, devises, transfers, or Gifts under IRS code. Four Creeks intends for some funding available each year for community benefit projects. Our support of National Night Out is an example. This year, the UAC is also working on a project to make high-quality maps available to residents in the Four Creeks area.
If you have an idea for a project that would provide broad benefit in the Four Creeks area, send it along with your email address, or contact a current member.
