Our next regularly scheduled meeting will be Tuesday January 14 at 7:00 PM at Fire Station 22 (on 108th Avenue NE). If you have ideas for the meeting please let us know - firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a couple of Board positions open - Vice President and Treasurer - these do not take much time, but will help us out immensely. Please contact us if you want to learn more.
There are a few items that I want to bring your attention to.
RapidRide K Line Planning
Metro is evaluating options for a new RapidRide line that will serve Kirkland. This will affect transit service in Kirkland, as routes 234/235 and 255 may have service cuts depending on where this new proposed line is routed.
Please take the survey and let King County know how you feel about transit in Kirkland! ACT Now - Survey Closes TODAY (11/26)!!!
Active Transportation Plan
The City of Kirkland wants to make walking and biking safer, easier, and more accessible for everyone. Safe and active transportation enables people of all ages and abilities/disabilities to get where they need to go safely and efficiently. We need to hear from you! Your thoughts will help the City update our Active Transportation Plan and develop Safer Routes to School Action Plans. These plans guide the City's future investments in transportation infrastructure.
Take our short survey today!
Sign Compliance Volunteer Openings
- Sign clutter is unsightly and a safety hazard (we need eyes on the road, not reading signs).
- Volunteers help code enforcement officers identify and collect non-compliant signs.
- Since the program began a year ago, hundreds of signs have been removed from Kirkland roads.
- The goal is to have a sign volunteer in each neighborhood. We know our neighborhoods best and can most effectively identify and monitor problem areas.
Some of the types of signs not allowed in Kirkland:
- Offsite commercial signs, including real estate arrows (open house A-boards are allowed only when a property is open for viewing, and only within ¼ mile of the property)
- Inflatable signs (“dancing dudes”)
- Signs with balloons attached
- Feather flags
- Signs attached to utility poles or street signs
- Signs in medians
- Campaign signs more than 7 days after an election
CHNA is developing a brochure/mailer to help us reach out to everyone in the Central Houghton Neighborhood so we can help keep people informed and hear other ideas, concerns, and perspectives. If you would like to assist with your creative design, graphics, editing, and any other skills/interest, please contact us at email@example.com . We hope to meet in December to get started on the new mailer.
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving
