It's been a few months since we met and we have lots of topics to discuss and provide updates on.
We will have Lt. Goguen of the Kirkland Police Department as a guest to answer questions about safety and crime activities and changes in the Police Department.
Much of the remainder of the meeting will focus on transportation planning and projects. Kimberly Scrivner of the City's Transportation Department will provide a presentation on the City's update of the Active Transportation Plan. The update to this plan will incorporate new innovative solutions that are designed to accommodate people of all ages and abilities for residents and visitors to feel more comfortable when choosing to walk or bike. It will also focus on completing connections, improving bike parking and considering technologies that can both facilitate travel by walking and bicycling and also to help the city better evaluate how many people are walking and bicycling in Kirkland.
The Active Transportation Plan will lead into CHNA's initial discussion of potential projects to submit for the 2022 Neighborhood Safety Program (NSP).
John Jordan from Northwest University (NU) also will join us. He will provide an update on the University's current activities and on the implementation of the NU Master Plan.
We will then provide updates on several topics including the NE 85th Station Area Plan and Houghton Transfer Station Siting Project.
As we previously noted the November 2 election includes 4 City Council positions. It also includes a ballot measure on whether to reauthorize the Houghton Municipal Corporation (Houghton Community Council) for four more years. The seven HCC member positions are also on the ballot and they would be elected if the HCC ballot measure is approved.
There is still time to register to vote or make changes (such as addresses) before the election. The King County Elections web page can be accessed here.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining our Board, want to help with any of our initiatives, or have ideas for future meeting topics.
