South Central Local Area
South Central Action Area Caucus Group
Local Integrating Organization for Puget Sound Recovery
Website under construction
The South Central Action Area Caucus Group (or the South Central LIO) is home to millions of residents living in two of Washington’s largest cities—Seattle and Bellevue —and in suburban and rural communities across unincorporated King County and the southwestern corner of Snohomish County.
The LIO area is the most urbanized portion of Puget Sound and includes a variety of industrial, commercial, and residential infrastructure, large areas of pavement, a heavily modified shoreline, and a large network of streets, roads, and highways. Although portions of this area have been intensively developed, a vast area is not considered urban, with tracts of agricultural lands in rural King County and wilderness in the Mount Baker–Snoqualmie National Forest. There are also large parks and open spaces throughout, including in the cities.
Vision for the LIO and Ecosystem Recovery Plan
The vision of the South Central LIO is to advance the recovery of a resilient Puget Sound ecosystem through local approaches and partnerships that are innovative, measurable, sustainable, and effective.
