Neighborhood Mtg March 12, 2014

Dear Finn Hill neighbors and friends: The Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance is hosting a meeting for all Finn Hill residents this Wednesday, March 12, at 7pm in the Finn Hill Middle School cafeteria, 8040 132nd Street NE. Please come! The agenda will cover some very important topics:

  • Trails in Big Finn Hill Park: If you walk or bike through Big Finn Hill Park you need to come to Wednesday’s meeting for this topic alone. Over the past 18 months, King County has worked with Park users to craft a plan for trails that will accommodate the needs of everyone. There was a lot of spirited debate over that plan, but a compromise was hammered out.

The hard part now is implementing the plan in a way that’s faithful to that consensus. FHNA is announcing the formation of Friends of Big Finn Hill Park to act as a “meeting place” for park users to discuss plan implementation and to ensure that the voices of walkers, dog owners, joggers and cyclists are heard. We’ll work with the County to promote trail development and maintenance that all users can support. Come hear our proposals and provide your input!

  • Finn Hill neighborhood plan: Many of us spent a provocative evening with City Planners last month offering our views on what we want to see in Finn Hill’s future – and what we hope to avoid. For those of you who couldn’t attend, we’ll provide a recap. And we’ll also offer a plan for digging deeply into the issues you raised. We’d love to hear your thoughts about how we can work with the City to control our neighborhood’s destiny.
  • City parks on Finn Hill: Kirkland is revising its parks and open space plans. The initial draft of the new plan is now being considered. There are several recommendations specific to Finn Hill. Michael Cogle from the Parks Department will describe the process and answer questions about the new plan.

See you on Wednesday!
