ECOSS in the Community


ECOSS was created by South Park community members to facilitate working partnerships among different, and often conflicting, segments of the community – residents, businesses, industry, and government. The aim was to bring these groups together to address environmental and developmental needs of the community. To this day, ECOSS acts on this vision, providing leadership and serving as a voice for communities around Puget Sound.
