Juanita Neighborhood Connection Projects

Neighborhood Connection Program 1999-2010:

The Neighborhood Connection Program invited residents to learn about City services, ask questions, and suggest neighborhood improvements. The purpose of the program was to:
  • Provide neighborhoods with the resources to address neighborhood needs.
  • Strengthen the relationship between City Hall and the neighborhoods.
  • Support neighborhood associations in expanding their membership.
  • Increase awareness of the City’s neighborhood services.
  • Build partnerships to improve Kirkland’s neighborhoods.

Every three years, neighborhood residents were given the opportunity to identify and prioritize improvements to their neighborhood. In ten years, over a million dollars of improvements (90 projects) were completed. City Council allocated $25,000 for each neighborhood’s top priority projects. Due to the economic downturn in 2010, the program was eliminated.

Residents are still invited to suggest Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) as the City prepares its six-year Capital Improvement Program.
