    The City of Kirkland appreciates the interest of our citizens and values public involvement. We make every effort to make the recordings of our meetings available soon after each meeting is completed. However, due to technical difficulties that may occur with our digital recording system it may take up to four days for a recording to become available online. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    As of January 8, 2015 Planning Commission meetings will be live video broadcast on cable channel KGOV 21 and streamed over the internet.  Meetings prior to this date will still have audio recordings available on our webpage.  If you have any questions, contact the Planning and Building Department at 425.587.3600 or PlanningInfo@kirklandwa.gov
