When the City of Kirkland’s first Non-Motorized Plan was adopted in 1995, such plans were relatively rare. Walking and bicycling evolved from being considered a novelty to a necessity and a valid mode of transportation. The term change from ‘non-motorized’ to ‘active transportation’ seeks not only to be more inclusive of people who use motorized wheelchairs and other motorized mobility devices but also to recognize walking and bicycling for what they are rather than what they are not.
The City has made great strides to increase safety and connectivity by filling in gaps in bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, making crossings safer, developing the interim Cross Kirkland Corridor, adopting a Complete Streets Policy and working with schools on a Safer Routes to School Action Plan.
