Suggest a Capital Improvement Project

If you are looking to put a Capital Improvement idea on the CIP project map, you came to the right place.

The Capital Improvement Projects map allows you to zoom in on the location of the suggested project, categorize it, describe it and ultimately submit it.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use our interactive map to suggest a project idea, which is the the only way to make your project idea eligible for a $50,000 Neighborhood Safety Program grant. You can also submit a project idea through our web form if that method is preferred.

If you have more than one project idea, please submit each one separately.  This will help ensure your ideas receive full consideration.  

Suggesting a project through this system is the first necessary step toward earning a grant from the Neighborhood Safety Program. That program awards up to $50,000 for project ideas that improve neighborhood safety. 

These suggestions can also become candidates for inclusion in the 2015-2020 Citywide Capital Improvement Program.

The City prepares a six year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) which plans for the improvements and maintenance of the City's water, sewer, and surface water utilities and transportation systems including streets, sidewalks, and intersections. The CIP document specifies project details, estimated costs, funding sources and timelines. Projects are prioritized based upon the CIP prioritization process and available funding. For example, see transportation prioritization process. The City Council reviews, updates and adopts the CIP every two years.

You can see current projects on the CIP project map.

As a resident, business, or visitor of Kirkland, you may have a question about a particular current CIP project.

Thank you for your input. Working together creates better projects and a stronger community.
