Market, Norkirk, Highlands Plan and Market Street Corridor Plan Update

Market, Norkirk, Highlands Neighborhood Plan & Market Street Corridor Plan Update 2019-2020 
File No: CAM19-00112

Project Description
In 2019-2020, the City of Kirkland Planning and Building Department, in coordination with the neighborhood associations in each area, is tasked with updating the Market, Norkirk and Highlands Neighborhood Plans and Market Street Corridor Plan. The purpose of a neighborhood plan is to establish a vision for each neighborhood over the next 20 years in context with the citywide goals and policies in the Comprehensive Plan. Now is a good opportunity for residents, property owners and business owners within these three neighborhoods to influence the future growth of these areas.

Project Status
-Attend the June 19, 2019 Neighbor to Neighbor Workshop 6:30-8:30 pm at Kirkland City Hall Peter Kirk Room (lower level), 123 Fifth Avenue, Kirkland. The format for the evening will be separate group discussions for the Market, Norkirk, Highlands neighborhoods and Market Street Corridor about policy topics people would like the four plans to address for the future.

-Take the online survey until July 22 links to external site 

-Subscribe to receive email announcements (see box)

The goal is to combine the public involvement into one consolidated process to hear what people would like to see revised in their neighborhood plans. Throughout 2019-2020, staff will meet with the joint Working Group, attend neighborhood association meetings, provide opportunities to attend public meetings, to discuss potential issues in the neighborhood like land use, environment, transportation and other topics. Study sessions and a public hearing will be held with the Planning Commission. Based on public input, the Commission will make a recommendation on each plan to City Council for final adoption. For more information see the Neighborhood Planning Framework document.

Check the City’s Public Meeting Calendar on the City of Kirkland website at for Planning Commission study sessions or other public meetings.
