For the Love of Kirkland

Project Ideas

On January 23, 2017, Kirkland came together at a city-wide neighborhood forum. Community engagement expert Peter Kageyama led 160 attendees through several exercises. In one of them, he asked everyone to think of surprising and delightful ways to express our love for Kirkland. Attendees then used voting to prioritize the ideas. Here is the list, in priority order. Interested in helping to make one of these great projects happen? Sign up here, then we'll put you in touch with other folks who've signed up for the same project, so you can get the ball rolling! Learn more about the projects and the event here.
