Human Services. Every dollar the City of Redmond invests in human services is leveraged more than five times over by service providers. 96 percent of service providers meet contracted performance results, the highest figure recorded since 2009.

Electronic Media. There were about 3.4 million page views on Redmond.gov during 2013 compared to 5.5 million in 2012. Much of the difference is due to the volatility in traffic camera page view and how such views are counted. The City continues to engage the community through print, other electronic, and social media.

Annexation. The City annexed 5.3 acres of land, slightly decreasing the acres of potential annexation area remaining from 579 to 574.

Engagement. 75 percent of Redmond’s citizen survey respondents feel very satisfied or satisfied with their engagement in community events, programs and volunteer opportunities.
