City Hall for All presents: Truck-a-palooza, Sustainability Fair, and Sustainability Summit
This year City Hall for All has something for everyone! All the action takes place on Saturday, October 12 at City Hall on 123 Fifth Ave. The event has four components: access to City services, Truck-a-palooza, Sustainability Fair, and the Sustainability Summit.
Access City Services on a Saturday from 12 to 4 p.m.
Once again this year community members will be able to access City services such as pet licensing, paying utility bills, and passport applications on a Saturday. Services will be available from 12 top 4 p.m. with the final passport applicant taken at 3:45 p.m. More information on applying for a passport is available on the City website.
Truck-a-palooza! 12 to 2 p.m.
Come down and see trucks! trucks! trucks! from 12 to 2 p.m. in the City Hall north parking lot. We'll have fire trucks, police vehicles, garbage trucks, plows, excavators, gators and more! Kids of all ages will have the opportunity to get a picture taken sitting on a fire engine, explore a police cruiser, and experience all types of City vehicles. There will be fun giveaways for the kids!
Sustainability Fair 1 to 4 p.m.
The Peter Kirk Room (off the south entrance of City Hall) will transform into a sustainability extravaganza from 1 to 4 p.m. We will have tips on all types of things you can do to make your home more sustainable---from solar panels to rain gardens to proper recycling techniques. Come and get information on how you might be able to access funds to build a rain garden or special financing for energy efficiency or solar projects. We'll also have a smorgasbord of FREE give-a-ways, including a bag of compost, courtesy of the City of Kirkland (while supplies last).
Sustainability Summit 2 to 5 p.m.
We want to hear from you! Join us for a continuation of the civic conversation on a range of topics related to sustainability. This highly interactive discussion will cover how to encourage students to bike, walk, and bus to school, environmental sustainability, and more. You can drop-in for one topic or stay for the entire time. This is a great opportunity to share your input in a casual environment on a multitude of issues that impact our community. If you attended the June Sustainability Forum or the July Sustainability Focus Groups, you can find out and provide feedback about what's next for the City’s Sustainability Master Plan. If you're interested in attending, please RSVP so that we can have enough materials for everyone.
