May was our first ever completely virtual meeting!
Fast-forward to the timestamps below if you are interested in a specific topic.
May is the month when we do our annual election of officers to the Moss Bay board. Normally we would vote in-person at the meeting. Instead, this year we'll be sending a survey out to our email list later this week which you can use to register your vote. Here are the people running for officer positions:

Big Changes Coming to Our Public Transit
In this two part video series our co-chair Brad talks about big changes coming to our neighborhood's public transit on March 21st.
The first video focuses on what's changing with the 255 and what you need to know to take public transit to downtown after 3/21.
In the second video we learn what's changing with the bus routes from downtown Kirkland to Juanita, Totem Lake, Kenmore, Bothell, Woodinville, Redmond and Bellevue. The end of the video also covers two future projects coming in 2024: RapidRide K Line and Swift BRT.
You can find more info on the King County Metro website.

Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan
Kari Page discussed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan. Kirkland has gone through the entire city and assessed if items such as sidewalks, access to transportation, and restrooms meet the ADA requirements. The transition plan identifies areas that need to be updated as well as the time frame for completing them.
Neighborhood Safety Program
Brad discussed the Neighborhood Safety Program. Moss Bay has three projects under consideration that meet the criteria for the program. In addition to voting in the meeting, surveys were sent to the Moss Bay mailing list. All three projects are proposals to replace crosswalk flags at the following locations with rapid flashing beacons, which are proven to be safer:
Kirkland Urban Update
We were honored to host the first Kirkland City Council Candidates forum at our September meeting. A big thank you to all seven candidates for their time and participation:
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on November 11, 2019.
The email@example.com email address has not been receiving email – we are looking into this asap. In the meantime, you can message or add a comment to the Moss Bay Facebook page.
We are approaching the time when the Moss Bay Neighborhood Plan will be updated. We don’t have an official neighborhood meeting in July but we may need to call a special session with the City to provide feedback.
We voted to approve the officer slate:

We will have 3 stations instead of 6 and combine neighborhoods. Moss Bay will be at Google. Station 2 will be just south of Kirkland Avenue (near the overpass). Station 3 will be just north of NE 85th overpass. Visit Crossingkirkland.org for updates and if you’d like to volunteer.
We participated in four City-led feedback sessions that David Wolbrecht and Christian Knight coordinated:
