Would you like to represent Moss Bay to help guide the City’s Parks and Recreation funding? Prompt action requested.
The City of Kirkland is considering a bond measure for Parks and Recreation funding, which you can learn more about by clicking here. They are organizing a diverse group of individuals to form a “Parks Funding Exploratory Committee” (PFEC) to provide input and guidance to the City Council. We are pleased to see that the City is holding a spot for each of the City’s neighborhood associations to be represented. Please see the email below for additional information.
That’s where you come in! Would you like to be considered for the Moss Bay Representative slot? If so, this is your chance to raise your hand and let us know!
How to apply?
We are open to considering business owners and property owners as well, however, because the City is already including those constituencies as part of the group, our association will give preference to a volunteer whose primary residence is in Moss Bay Neighborhood.
Thank you! Please send your reply to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, and we look forward to hearing from you!

Moss Bay Neighborhood Association
Hello Kirkland neighbors,
The Kirkland City Council would like to invite all neighborhood groups to participate in the City’s upcoming Parks Funding Exploratory Committee (PFEC), which will advise the City Council on potential Parks ballot measure(s) for the November 2023 election.
Over the past year, Kirkland community members have told the City they want more park facilities and recreational opportunities. To accelerate park and recreation improvements, City Council is exploring parks and recreation ballot measure options for November 2023.
City Council is looking for input from Kirkland community members to help identify the right elements to include and the appropriate funding mechanism(s) that could be part of the November 2023 ballot measure. We are hoping that a delegate from your neighborhood will participate in this effort. Your neighborhood’s delegate does not have to be a board member but can be someone you feel could represent your neighborhood and actively participate in the process. We are seeking community members who care, who can ask tough questions and can regularly attend the PFEC meetings.
We are asking that each neighborhood identifies a delegate by Thursday, August 25, 2022. The first PFEC meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 15, 2022. The PFEC will meet approximately twice a month on Thursday evenings from September 2022 to February 2023 and will ultimately bring a recommendation to the City Council in March 2023.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. More information will be provided to PFEC members closer to the first meeting date and PFEC updates will be posted on our City website: http://www.kirklandwa.gov/parks2023ballot.

Community Invited to Provide Input on Terms for the Future Housing Site at the Former La Quinta Inn
KIRKLAND, Wash. – The City of Kirkland and King County will host a virtual town hall meeting on May 9, 2022, at 5:30 p.m. on the topic of the future permanent supportive housing site at the former La Quinta Inn in Kirkland as part of King County’s Health Through Housing program. This community meeting will focus on the terms and conditions necessary to maintain City support of La Quinta Inn as a Health Through Housing site. Meeting information and registration can be found online.
The town hall will be an opportunity for the community to ask questions, offer ideas, and talk more about the project. The feedback from the community will inform upcoming implementation decisions, including a safety plan, referral process for tenants, and ongoing community communication. Additional small group meetings are being scheduled for after the town hall for any community members that want to discuss the project in more depth and provide additional input.
Last month, King County announced that it closed on the purchase of the former La Quinta Inn & Suites in Kirkland for a permanent supportive housing site under the Health Through Housing Initiative. This initiative aims to assist residents who are not supported through other housing program models, and each site includes 24/7 staffing, case management, employment counseling, and medical and behavioral healthcare. Supportive housing serves a different need along the continuum of care than shelters provide, and the County’s purchase of a hotel in Kirkland for supportive housing fills a gap in Kirkland’s services. King County is allowed under state law to acquire property for this purpose.
The May 9 town hall will be a special meeting of the Kirkland City Council. By registering for this event, you will receive email reminders about the town hall and the Zoom link when available. The Zoom link for the meeting will also be posted to the City’s website prior to the meeting.
For more information on King County’s permanent supportive housing site at the former La Quinta Inn in Kirkland, please visit City’s comprehensive informational Health Through Housing webpage. Members of the public can also provide feedback through the City’s Our Kirkland web portal.
What do you think about Autonomous Personal Delivery Devices?
Autonomous Personal Delivery Devices (APDDs) are wheeled machines designed to deliver products to customers. The City of Kirkland is studying these devices and considering any concerns from the community. Want to explore this topic with City staff? City staff will be facilitating small group meetings for deeper discussion around APDDs. Sign up and learn more at on the City’s website.
For more opportunities to provide feedback to the City, please visit our Community Conversations page.
Have other feedback, questions, or requests for service? You can always contact City staff through the Our Kirkland service portal, available on the web and mobile app.https://kirklandwa.qscend.com/ourkirkland/
