State Street/Central Neighborhood Association
April 6, 2000 Houghton Fire Station
John Alberti called the meeting to order.
There was a presentation by the project architect on the proposed Park Place renovation. A model was there for SSCNA members to view. Theresa Swan from the City of Kirkland discussed the approval process for the project.
Kari Page, Kirkland’s Neighborhood Services Coordinator had news on several issues:
Ellen McMahon mentioned that the speed humps scheduled to be installed in our neighborhood are on schedule and should be installed soon. Ellen also updated us on the strategic plan being prepared for the downtown area. Heights of buildings is an issue. Also, many on the planning group are in favor of opening a “hole” in the wall of buildings behind Marina Park as a way of connecting Park Lane—and Park Place—with the waterfront.
The next meeting was scheduled for May 4th at the Senior Center on Kirkland Ave.
