Active Living Task Force
The Active Living Task Force (ALTF), created in 2007, is comprised of residents, community agencies, local businesses, and City representatives.
Our Vision is for community design, services and programs to enhance our quality of life by making it safe, enjoyable and easy for everyone to be physically active in their daily lives.
Our mission is to advise Kirkland policy makers, advocate and provide support for local strategies aimed at promoting community-enriched physical activity as an integral part of everyone’s (including the disabled) daily life.
Educate ALTF members about pedestrian and bicycle related issues, Active Living initiatives and other community-based health programs to better enable task force members to advise Kirkland policy makers
Educate the community about these issues, initiatives about these programs and encourage their participation
Identify barriers to and opportunities for physical activity and propose alternative approaches to removing these barriers and providing opportunities which may include policy recommendations, land use decisions, insuring accessibility, capital projects, events, outreach and community education
Pursue strategies where the Task Force may be uniquely positioned to initiate or undertake targeted projects including developing community education materials, advocating for infrastructure improvements and supporting special events.
