In the year 2000, Kirkland’s seven City Council members assumed a challenging objective: Define goals that would guide Kirkland in the present and in the future. Nine years later, all members agreed on ten goals. And in a series of educational films, Kirkland Works, the City of Kirkland is detailing those goals—the City’s strategy for attaining them, its progress toward them and how those goals affect citizens.
