Cross Kirkland Corridor Master Plan
What is a Master Plan?
The Master Plan’s purpose is to serve as a guidance document that will build the framework and identify some basic design elements for a regional paved trail and a regional transit pathway along the corridor. Primarily, this includes the location of access points, types and locations of amenities, and how road crossings are handled.

On June 17, 2014, the Kirkland City Council unanimously approved the Cross Kirkland Corridor Master Plan. View the current version of the CKC Master Plan.

The Cross Kirkland Corridor Master Plan has four goals:
  1. Connect Kirkland
  2. Foster a greener Kirkland
  3. Shape a place unique to Kirkland 
  4. Activate Kirkland and evolve over time
Funding of the Master Plan development is made possible by the passage of the November 2012 Parks Levy (Proposition 2). In early-2013, the City hired The Berger Partnership to help develop the Master Plan.


Master Plan Character Zones

With these goals in mind, the Master Plan divided the corridor into eight distinct geographic regions, or “Character Zones.”  Through extensive research and gathering public input, unique attributes and opportunities for future growth and development were identified within each Character Zone. By clicking on each zone (to the right), you will see a section map and comments heard at Community Planning Day in October 2013. To learn more about Character Zones, read: Understanding the Corridor (Draft published August 2013).

After six months of planning, two public meetings, dozens of conversations, and hundreds of the community’s comments, your involvement has helped shape the look and feel of our future corridor. But, we’re not done yet! There are a number of ways you can participate, and here’s just a few:
