We wanted to make sure to get the word out on a couple of things that are coming up next week.
Enjoy the weekend and stay safe.

108th Avenue Closure (NE 52nd to NE 55th)
Kirkland’s contractor is closing on July 27 a short section of 108th Avenue Northeast for two weeks while its crews install the new sewer main.
Marshbank Construction will close the arterial between Northeast 52nd and 55th streets from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., starting Monday. In the afternoon, the contractor will close the center turn-lane from 4 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Marshbank will provide access for local traffic between Northeast 55th and 60th streets.
The detour will route commuters along Northeast 68th Street, Lakeview Drive and Northeast 38th Place.

Community Survey (closes July 29)
The City has launched its online biennial Community Survey to gauge community attitudes about the quality of life in Kirkland, satisfaction with City government services, and priorities for the future. We’re really hoping to get robust participation in this survey.
Please take a moment to take the survey and send it out to your neighbors:
As you may know, for over a decade, the City has conducted a version of this survey every two years as part of its budget process. A phone version of the community survey was recently administered to a statistically valid, random sample of Kirkland residents. The results from both the online survey and the phone survey will be presented to the City Council in the coming months. The results will inform the Council about the community’s sentiments on various issues in Kirkland in preparation for the Council’s adoption of their 2021-2022 biennial budget later this fall.
The online survey will close at 12 pm on July 29, 2020. Results of past surveys can be found on the City’s website.
