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 8-10 years in context with the citywide goals and policies in the Comprehensive Plan. 

-Two Focus Group meetings have been completed 1) Market Street Corridor (PDF 301 kb) and 2) Single Family House Design (PDF 6.6MB). Conclusions from those groups are available in the grey box.
-June Workshop public comments are available in grey box.
-Spring survey Final Report and Appendix documents are available in grey box.


The public involvement process for all Plans are being consolidated into one process to hear what people would like to see revised in their neighborhood plans. A joint Working Group was formed. 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.
