Wed., March 25th Neighborhood Meeting

Dear Finn Hill neighbors and friends:

Welcome to the first day of Spring! It seems fitting to mark the occasion by inviting you to come to our first general meeting of the year!

Date & Time: Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at 7 pm.

Location: Finn Hill Middle School Cafeteria
(8040 Northeast 132nd Street Kirkland, WA 98034.)

The Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance (FHNA) is hosting a neighborhood meeting in the cafeteria/meeting hall. Please come! The meeting is open to everyone and will offer two important perspectives on how Finn Hill is changing:

  • Radke property development – 18 homes: A representative of Toll Brothers will review his company’s plans to build 18 homes on property located between Juanita Drive and 80th Avenue, just north of 125th Street. See attached map. This is a significant development. The meeting will be your best opportunity to learn about it and to ask questions about design, traffic plans, tree retention, surface water management, and the like. (View PDF of Map)
  • Finn Hill neighborhood plan we’re starting up and need your help!: The Radke development is one of several Finn Hill residential construction projects for which permit applications are pending. When a project conforms to zoning requirements, it’s often difficult for neighbors to affect a developers’ plans. That’s why it’s essential to create a good neighborhood plan in which zoning for homes and businesses makes sense. But Finn Hill doesn’t have a plan today. FHNA has worked with the City to start a Finn Hill neighborhood plan process that will be community driven and will consider all of the issues affecting our neighborhood. Find out what the process will be and how you can shape it. This is our chance to define the future of where we live. We’re looking for volunteers to ensure that this is a successful initiative.
  • Updates and activities: Get the latest news on what’s happening with the Aquatic Recreation Center, the fire station, Juanita Drive and other transportation projects in our neighborhood. Also, we’ll talk about opportunities to participate in neighborhood events, like DennyFest, our annual Garage Sale, and forest restoration work parties.
