Mayor Jim Ferrell
It is a pleasure to welcome you to my official webpage and to the City of Federal Way’s online home. I hope you will enjoy this newly designed website and find it easy to use and informative.
Strategically located on Interstate 5 between Seattle and Tacoma in King County, Federal Way is home to nearly 100,000 residents and a Puget Sound population of over 3 million. Federal Way is known for its majestic views, quality parks and public facilities, and business friendly environment. Incorporated in 1990, Federal Way operates a Mayor-Council form of government and is recognized for the provision of quality public services, excellent streets and city infrastructure, desirable neighborhoods, and quality public safety services.
Federal Way is on the move. We are building a brand new Performing Arts & Event which will be a regional draw, showcasing national acts, and will host conferences and events throughout the year. On July 9, 2016 we held the Grand Re-Opening of Town Square Park. The park will feature a spray park, permeable concrete walking trail, great lawn, a playground for kids, and more than 130 beautiful trees. Town Square Park serves as the beating heart of our community and is truly a park for all of our residents to enjoy.
Federal Way is a wonderfully diverse community, rich in spirit, with a strong civic consciousness. We have numerous community groups including a Historical Society, active Chamber of Commerce, great service clubs like the Kiwanis, Rotary, Lions, and Toast Masters just to name a few.
I am proud of the progress we have made in the last two years and I truly believe the best is yet to come. Please visit this website often and be sure to check out the link to my “Mayors Memos” and “Mayor’s Minute” videos that will post updates on the many ways we continue to move Federal Way forward.
Thanks’ for stopping by!
