Here is a message from City Councilmember Dave Asher.
After generous support from you for the Thanksgiving school break, Kirkland Nourishing Network is asking if you can help with our longest, and largest, drive of the school year in December.
Since the size of this project is so large, would you please share this with your friends and acquaintances? It may be the most meaningful email you send all season.
For those unfamiliar with Kirkland Nourishing Network, we try to supplement the food available to needy school children during the 4 school breaks. Normally these kids have free/reduced meals at school and most have Pantry Packs on weekends; but there is no other program providing food assistance during the breaks in the school year.
We don’t try to do it all, but we do try to provide nourishment supplements to those children identified by school counselors and teachers as the most needy. There is a standard shopping list and an established drop-off date and location. This year, it is the morning of Thursday, December 20th at two locations, one in the south of Kirkland and one in the north.
Kirkland has a long reputation of stepping up to help the less fortunate. This opportunity requires your commitment to shop for a box of food and deliver it. The impact of those simple tasks is huge compared to the effort you have to put into it.
You make the network work. Please share this with your friends.
Thank you for your consideration,
- Kirkland Nourishing Network volunteers
The agenda for the September 11, 2018 CHNA meeting is provided below. The below link can be used to download it.
We are excited to have several staff members from the City of Kirkland at our meeting. Captain Ursino will join us to share the latest information from the Police Command Staff and will answer questions at the beginning of the meeting. We also will hear about the upcoming ballot measure that we will vote on in November. If approved, the ballot measure will increase the Kirkland local sales tax by 0.1 percent to fund increased police services focused on property crime, additional school resource officers, funding for a dedicated mental health professional to assist the Police Department, and other programs.
During the core of the meeting will hear from Christina Brugman on Emergency preparedness. This will include guidance on what each of us can do to be ready for natural disasters, what to expect, and overviews of City and other programs.
We also will provide information on the neighborhood safety program, development projects, capital improvement projects, and the results of our CHNA survey and meeting schedules.
The notes from the December 14 2017 Central Houghton Neighborhood Meeting are available below followed by the slides from the City's Housing Strategy Workshop (December 2) and the Northwest University's presentation at the November 14 CHNA meeting.

Today, Kirkland’s over 84,000 residents are served by several transit routes connecting the city to various Eastside destinations and Seattle. Similar to other areas in the region, Kirkland is becoming a major employment center that attracts transit trips, and transit frequency is increasing to meet the growing demand.
In response to increased growth, the City of Kirkland is working to improve transit service for residents through the Kirkland Transit Implementation Plan (KTIP). In 2015, the City worked closely with stakeholders and the community to adopt the Transportation Master Plan. This plan helped to prioritize transportation projects through 2035, including the KTIP. The City is now working to develop the KTIP as a way to build upon the goals of the Transportation Master Plan and improve transit throughout the City. The KTIP will serve as a tool to help get Kirkland residents where they want to go in the fastest and most convenient way.
Transit Implementation Plan Open House

About this Meeting
The City of Kirkland is working to develop a Transit Implementation Plan. The plan will identify possible transit improvements in key areas of the city.
A key part of this plan is hearing from Kirkland residents about priorities for transit investments. One of the big ways that we’re doing this is through the Open House.
We could really use your help in spreading the word about this meeting to your neighborhood lists and contacts. The City will also be sending this out via social media and our weekly email newsletter, so please share our posts or forward the e-newsletters when you see them.
Residents can come to the open house to:
Have you ever wanted to ask candid questions of your local law enforcement officers but didn’t feel like you could? Now’s your chance.

The first date is on October 4th, 2017 at Urban Coffee, 12348 NE 115th Place just off 124th Avenue NE. Join Officer Deana Lansing there from 11am-1pm.
For more information contact Neighborhood Resource Officer Deana Lansing at 425-587-3451 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
During this week, there will be a series of events where communities bring together immigrants and U.S. born residents in a spirit of unity to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone. Community members are invited to host events (big or small) that are welcome to all and that provide an opportunity for people from diverse backgrounds to come together.
Here is a link to many of these events happening on the Eastside this week:
We would like to see KAN and individual neighborhoods participate with an event/s next September. Try to attend a couple of events, and bring back your ideas!
The Juanita Neighborhood Association put on the "Welcoming Kirkland" event yesterday at Heritage Hall. Thank you Juanita!
