The Neighborhood Safety Program reenergizes Neighborhood Associations by empowering them to work collaboratively to identify, prioritize and address pedestrian and bicycle safety issues in Kirkland neighborhoods.

The Program is funded by the voter approved 2012 Streets Levy ($150,000 per year) and City Council’s Walkable Kirkland Initiative ($200,000 per year until 2020).

More information is available online about the 2016 Neighborhood Safety Program Projects or search “Neighborhood Safety Program” on www.kirklandwa.gov.
