Upcoming Everest Neighborhood Association Meeting

A reminder that the Everest Neighborhood Association meeting will be this Tuesday (March 14th) at 7 pm at City Hall (123 5th Avenue) in City Council Chambers. Please plan to arrive early. Carpooling is encouraged.

The Transportation and Design Consultants hired by the City will be presenting their proposals for re-zoning the Houghton Everest Neighborhood Center. This will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and understand what is being proposed so that you can decide if you support the options presented.

This meeting will not be a public hearing (that will be held on March 23rd –  6 pm City Hall) but your participation is important.

Questions can be submitted in advance to Angela Ruggeri at:  ARuggeri@kirklandwa.gov  please cc: amrising@gmail.com

The Everest Neighborhood Association Board met recently and will be emailing their recommendation for the Neighborhood Center after the meeting.

Anna, our chair, has been following this issue closely for many years, so please feel free to email her if you have any questions. Here’s the latest info from the city on the state of the plan currently:

On the agenda were plans to re-zone the business district for up to five stories. The Central Houghton Neighborhood association has a great wrap-up. No sense duplicating their work, here’s a link to their post if you want to learn more:
