In 2021, Planning Department staff in coordination with the community and businesses in the Moss Bay Neighborhood(PDF, 2MB) is updating the existing Moss Bay Neighborhood Plan chapter in the Kirkland Comprehensive Plan. The process will incorporate into the Plan, the consolidated plan for the Greater Downtown Urban Center(PDF, 17MB) (designated in the King County Countywide Planning Policies in 2019) and recommendations of the NE 85th Street Station Area Plan. For information about the scope of work, process, public outreach plan and schedule that will be used for the neighborhood plan update process review the Moss Bay-Everest Neighborhood Plan Update Framework(PDF, 296KB)  document.

What is the Process?

A working group will be formed to work with staff on updating the Moss Bay Neighborhood Plan which will include revisiting the vision statement and policies to determine if they are relevant for the change of the area over time. People interested in participating in the working group should contact staff. A robust public outreach process will solicit input on revisions to the plan including public workshops, a survey and other opportunities (stay tuned for dates). The community will have an opportunity to comment on the draft plans prior to the public hearing before the Planning Commission and final adoption by City Council by the end of 2021. See timeline for key steps and timing.
