News and Updates
Next Meeting: September 11, 2017
Our next official meeting is September 11, 2017 at 7pm, at Heritage Hall.
Since we skip July for official meetings, we decided to have an informal, social get-together instead. We will reserve a room at Chainline Brewery or Wild Rover and post an update with the date/time/place.
Thank you to everyone who attended our May 8, 2017 meeting. You will find meeting notes on the Meeting Minutes tab.
Volunteer Hours Needed
At our January 2017 meeting, we voted to apply for a matching grant to install a sign at Marina Park. The Parks Department approved a metal sign that will be attached to the concrete siding of the lift station at Lake Shore Plaza. We are getting quotes and designs from metal workers now.
The city matches Moss Bay residents' time with funding, and we need at least 138 volunteer hours to qualify. If you have volunteered at a City or Kirkland Downtown Association activity since January 1, 2017, please email your name, the event and date, and your hours to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neighborhood Safety Program
Our two projects were not selected for this round of Neighborhood Safety Program (NSP) Grant projects. The projects that received funding either impacted many more people or involved safe school walk routes -- or both. Let's keep this criteria in mind for the next cycle.
For reference, the projects we submitted were:
We've had success with our proposed projects in the past, including the stairs connecting the CKC with NE 68th St at Lakeview Elementary. To learn more about the Neighborhood Safety Program, click here: http://www.kirklandwa.gov/depart/CMO/Neighborhood_Services/NSP.htm

For the Love of Kirkland
The City of Kirkland recently hosted a workshop designed to engage residents in community-building. Information about the event, click here: http://www.kirklandwa.gov/depart/CMO/Neighborhood_Services/For_the_Love_of_Kirkland.htm
Kirkland Downtown Association
The Kirkland Downtown Association (KDA) sponsors many of our favorite events, including the Wednesday Market, the Classic Car Show, Summerfest, and much more.
Supporting KDA benefits the Moss Bay neighborhood in several ways:
KDA has created a membership program for both residents and businesses, and the first 400 members receive a free canvas tote bag.
KDA and the Chamber of Commerce are located at 440 Central Way, in the Arete Building.
