                       4.  The community needs lists were developed based on an initial catalog of requests from the community for potential services, programs and improvements.  The initial catalog was refined by the community service area program of the department of local services into a community needs list based on review by departments as to whether and to what extent the requests meets or strengthens the community vision and policies established in the subarea plans and other county plans.  County agencies also reviewed the initial catalog for consistency with other county plans, feasibility, budget constraints, timing, resources needs and other barriers to implementation.  The Skyway-West Hill and North Highline communities also reviewed the initial catalog through ongoing community engagement to identify, discuss and prioritize community needs;

                       7.  The community needs lists include performance metrics to monitor the implementation and the overarching progress towards reaching the twenty-year vision established in the policies of the subarea plan, as informed by the community and the council.  The performance metrics will be reviewed and reported on annually and monitored by the community and the council;

                       8.  The executive coordinated and collaborated with councilmember offices that represent the Skyway-West Hill and North Highline subarea geographies throughout the development of the community needs lists; and
