Human Services. Every dollar the City of Redmond invests in human services is leveraged more than five times over by service providers. Ninety-two percent of service providers meet contracted performance results; the percentage has ranged from 91 percent to 96 percent since 2009.

Electronic Media. There were about 1.8 million page views on Redmond.gov during 2014 compared to 3.4 million in 2013. Much of the difference is due to the how page views are counted for very popular pages like the Traffic Cameras page. The City continues to engage the community through print, other electronic, and social media.

Annexation. The City did not annex any land in 2014; the total potential annexation area remains 574 acres.

Engagement. In 2012, 75 percent of Redmond’s citizen survey respondents felt very satisfied or satisfied with their engagement in community events, programs and volunteer opportunities.
