Diverse & Connected Community
Goal: Cultivate a well-connected community, working together and with others in the region to implement a common vision for Redmond’s sustainable future.

Community priority: I want a sense of community and connection with others.

Human Services
. Every dollar the City of Redmond invests in human services is leveraged more than five times over by service providers. In 2015, 100 percent of service providers met contracted outcome goals.

Electronic Media. There were about 1.4 million page views on Redmond.gov during 2015 compared to 1.8 million in 2014. The City continues to engage the community through print, other electronic, and social media.

Annexation. The City annexed 11.8 acres in early 2016. There are about 562 acres remaining to be annexed.

Engagement. In 2016, 77 percent of Redmond’s citizen survey respondents felt very satisfied or satisfied with their sense of connection to the community. In 2015, 16,598 connections were made including connections via the web and social media, and through Old Town Historic Core, Overlake Village, and Marymoor Subarea planning efforts.
