5.  The interjurisdictional joint recommendations committee of the King County Consortium member cities participated in the development of the updated Consolidated Housing and Community Development Plan for 2020-2024, has approved the plan, and recommends it for approval by the King County council.

                     SECTION 1.  The King County Consortium Consolidated Housing and

Community Development Plan for 2020-2024 is approved in substantially the form of Attachment A to this ordinance.
