Comprehensive Plan Basics
You may be hearing an old term with greater frequency: Comprehensive Plan.  When you hear the term, you might ask:
  • What is a Comprehensive Plan?
  • Why is the Plan important to me?
  • How is the Comprehensive Plan used?
  • Who decides what the Plan says?
  • What topics are addressed in the Comprehensive Plan?
  • Are there state or local laws that the Plan must reflect?
  • Why does Kirkland have to continue to grow?
We hope the information here helps you understand the importance of Kirkland’s Comprehensive Plan, why the City has one, and how Kirkland needs to manage its future jobs and housing growth.
