Comprehensive Environmental Plans

  • the Sustainability Master Plan (2020) identifies specific goals and actions the City should work towards
  • the Natural Resource Management (NRM) Plan (pdf) (2003) recognizes the complexity of the interaction of its water, land and air systems and identifies action items intended protect Kirkland’s environmentally sensitive areas
  • the Comprehensive Plan (2015) outlines the community vision to have Kirkland be an “attractive, vibrant, inviting place to live and work,” and to provide an “extensive park system and to preserve open space and waterfront trails and vistas.” To achieve this vision, the City has adopted guiding principals and implemented regulations that call for the protection of our natural resources.

Many other plans provide guidance about specific topics, such as the Shoreline Master Program, Safer Routes to Schools Action Plans, and Cross Kirkland Corridor Master Plan.
