The other members include:

• Tim Trohimovich, planning director of Futurewise

• Stephanie Warden, director of DDES

• Larry Rude, assistant chief of Support Services at Maple Valley Fire and Life Safety

• Dan Bruner a consulting forester at Bruner Forestry

• Gordon Moorman, a member of the Greater Maple Valley Unincorporated Area Council

• David Spohr, King County’s rural ombudsman.
