April Finn Hill News

Dear Finn Hill Residents:

Now that those taxes are done, you’re probably wondering, “What’s going on in Finn Hill these days?” Here’s a quick update on what’s happening now, or is about to happen – or has just happened:

Chaffey PAR – April 16:  the City Council will decide at its meeting on Tuesday, April 16, if it will act on a request to rezone a wooded parcel on Simonds Road from 4 units/acre to 8 units. If you want the City to defer consideration of the request until Finn Hill has a neighborhood plan, please send an email to citycouncil@kirklanwa.gov. For more details, see the story on the FHNA website.

City Council Vacancy – April 16: The City Council will also select someone tomorrow night to fill Council Position No. 2, recently vacated by Bob Sternoff. Seventeen individuals applied for the appointment, and the Council has narrowed the field to 5 candidates, whom it will interview at a special session beginning at 4:30pm. The Council will make a final choice during its regular meeting later in the evening. One of the finalists is Finn Hill’s Jon Pascal (a Kirkland Planning Commissioner and an FHNA board member).

Wanted: Garage Sales on April 27: FHNA is coordinating our first annual garage sale festival on April 27. We’ve lined up several garage sales already, but we need more! Participants will get signs and free publicity. Bring our community together, clean out your clutter… and get some cash for your stash at the same time. What could be better? Details on the FHNA website.

GiveBIG on May 15: Every year, the Seattle Foundation sponsors GiveBIG, a one-day donation celebration in which your online contribution to non-profit can help it earn extra dollars from the Foundation. This year’s GiveBIG date is Wednesday, May 15. Please think about a tax-deductible gift to FHNA so we’ll have the funding to make Finn Hill an even better place to live. We’ll send out more details in the coming weeks, but if you want to learn more now, check out the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG page.

 Juanita Woodlands Clean-Up on March 20: More than two dozen volunteers showed up to remove ivy and invasives, and gave recently planted saplings a chance to grow. Many thanks to all of you who helped out! We’re posting a story and pictures on the FHNA website this week.

That’s all, folks!
