The City of Kirkland is developing a draft Permanent Supportive Housing Agreement (PSHA) between the City of Kirkland and King County and a draft Services Agreement (SA) between the County and the future operator of the designated permanent supporting housing facility at the former La Quinta Inn in Kirkland. The working draft PSHA and working draft SA were presented to the City Council at its November 15 meeting (see below links).
The Central Houghton Neighborhood Association is holding a Special Meeting on December 6 to allow our neighborhoods to learn more about these draft agreements. The meeting also will provide a forum for residents and businesses in the Central Houghton and Lakeview Neighborhoods to ask questions and make suggestions to address specific concerns about the facility that can be addressed in these agreements.
The meeting information is:
What : La Quinta Draft Permanent Supportive Housing Agreement and Service Agreement
When : Tuesday, December 6 (6:00 to 7:30 PM)
Where: Kirkland City Hall City Council Chambers - 123 - 5th Avenue; Kirkland, WA
Jim Lopez, Deputy City Manager will give a presentation on the current draft agreements which will address some of the community concerns and questions that have been previously noted. We will allow time for community comments and questions focused on the agreements. Our comments and questions can then be considered by City staff and City Council for incorporation into the draft agreements before they are presented at a Public Hearing (tentatively scheduled for January 3, 2023).
In preparing for the meeting, I strongly encourage everyone to review the November 15 City Council packet and watch the City Council Study Session presentation and discussion. The November 15 Council packet can be found here - November 15 Council Packet and the Study Session video can be accessed here - November 15 Study Session.
Please forward to your neighborhood lists.
Larry Toedtli, President
Central Houghton Neighborhood Association.
