Below is a step-by-step guide for using the Capital Improvement Projects interactive map to submit capital improvement ideas. On the map, you will zoom in on the location of your suggested project, categorize the project, describe it, and submit it.
Note: Please use the Our Kirkland service request portal for requests for maintenance or repairs to capital assets (sidewalks, roadways, traffic signals) or for residential traffic calming measures. Do not use the Capital Improvement Projects map. If you have multiple project ideas at various locations, please submit each capital project idea separately. This will help ensure your ideas receive full consideration.
Open the Capital Improvement Projects map. Then click the blue "I want to..." button.
Click "Submit a Project idea".
Click the location on the map where your project idea is located. A form will pop up on the left side. Describe your project idea in detail. Leave your contact information (optional) and whether you would like us to contact you. Click the "Send" button to submit your project idea.
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 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. The City Council reviews, updates and adopts the CIP every two years.
You can see all the projects currently in planning, design, or construction on the CIP Interactive 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.
