History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The community was built by the Tualatin Development Company starting in 1964. Created as a planned adult community, King City was incorporated in March 1966. Build-out of the original finished about 1978.[1] Originally, King City was developed as an age-restricted community governed by the rules of the King City Civic Association (KCCA) in which people under 50 could not live in the city.

The KCCA rules, which forbid minors from living within its city limits for more than a short time, have since been subjected to increasing criticism. The city of King City, which covers a larger area than KCCA, does not, and legally cannot, enforce any age or similar limitations on who may reside in the city. The city annexed an area to the west that will include 400-450 new homes when completed. Homes in the new area are not age restricted.
