Kirkland’s Neighborhood University offers unique learning experience

Since 2001, the Kirkland Alliance of Neighborhoods (KAN) has hosted an educational class called Neighborhood University (“Neighborhood U”) to help residents learn about their city government, receive leadership training, and discover ways to build community within neighborhoods.  In this year’s session, former and current elected officials, neighborhood leaders, and a city planning commissioner will share experiences on building and sustaining active and vibrant neighborhoods.  Also featured will be fast paced informational presentations from city officials that will give an insider’s view to various city programs, services, and operations.  Neighborhood U will be held Wednesday, May 11, 2011, 6 to 9 pm, Juanita Elementary School, Cafeteria, 9635 NE 132nd Street.  The course is free; reservations are requested by May 4. To learn more, visit  To RSVP please email or call Kari Page, Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator at 425-587-3011.

“Neighborhood U is a great opportunity for residents to better understand how to best access city officials, programs, and information,” notes Norm Storme, Chair, KAN.  “We encourage current city and annexation residents to attend.”

KAN is composed of the chairs and vice-chairs of 11 neighborhood associations.  For more about KAN and past Neighborhood U session, go to and search Kirkland Alliance of Neighborhoods.
