About Our Community
Nestled at the foot of Bull Mountain, located in the Tualatin Valley along Highway 99W, sits the City of King City, the fulfillment of a dream by Ron Sorenson, its founder and developer. In 1960 Mr. Sorenson bought 66 acres of farmland “that was later to be the critical piece of land for the development of King City” (Reynolds.) In July 1966, Governor Mark Hatfield dedicated King City, Oregon, as an incorporated city.
Throughout the growth of King City, developers started to build Single Family Use, and Multi-Family Use residential houses west of 131st Street that welcomed all ages.
Since 2016, the City of King City has been working on plans for smart growth and connected streets with the community. Part of this growth was the 2018 concept plan, which was approved by Metro, and the city is currently working on the Transportation System Plan and the Kingston Terrace Master Plan. Per the 2020 Census data, the City of King City has grown to 5,184 residents. This is a growth rate of 66.7% since the 2010 Census data.
The City of King City recognizes the unique and diverse needs of our community members. Providing service and support to our community is at the heart of King City's mission.
