Saturday, November 14 is Your Chance to Shape Finn Hill’s Future

Saturday, November 14 is Your Chance to Shape Finn Hill’s Future

As you know, the City and FHNA are collaborating to involve Finn Hill residents – that’s you! – in creating a long-term neighborhood plan for Finn Hill. We hosted a “listening session” at Finn Hill Middle School on October 15.

Now we’ve scheduled a workshop for this Saturday, November 14, from 10 to 2pm at the Finn Hill Middle School, 8040 NE 132nd Street, Kirkland WA 98034. We’ll provide lunch, coffee, and other beverages. (More details are in the press release.)

Please come!!! This is your chance to shape the future of where you live for the next several decades. If you are worried about new subdivisions, or safe streets, or traffic congestion, or better shopping alternatives on Finn Hill, this is the time to speak up.

At Saturday’s workshop, you’ll join other Finn Hill residents in small groups to design the future of your immediate neighborhood as well as all of Finn Hill. Your recommendations will shape the housing, road, and other development decisions that the City will enact into zoning laws and capital improvement plans.

Yes, there’s a Husky game at noon. And plenty of other things you have on your list. But this planning workshop is an opportunity you won’t get for years to come – so I hope you’ll make time for it. And did I mention that we’ll get you a free lunch? Here’s what you should do —

  • Register In order to manage logistics, we’d like you to register using this Eventbrite link. We’ll get back to you in a few days to find out what part of Finn Hill you live in (so we can assemble teams of neighbors who live in the same area) and to get a food order for you.
  • Take the survey. Between now and the 11th, you can offer your views about Finn Hill – what you like and what you don’t – by taking an online survey. (It covers many of the questions that were presented during October 15 listening session).
  • Spread the word. Tell your friends and neighbors about the Finn Hill neighborhood planning process. Invite them to join you on November 14.
  • Learn more. In the meantime, you can learn more about the neighborhood plan process on the City’s web page and the FHNA neighborhood plan web page. You can join the conversation on our web page by submitting your comments (scroll to bottom of the web page). We’ve got maps and other materials posted on that page, too. And we’ll be updating it this week and for weeks to come, so please drop in from time to time to see what’s new.

Change is coming to Finn Hill, whether we like it or not. But we can shape how our neighborhood will evolve — if we make our voices heard. I hope you won’t miss this opportunity to preserve our quality of life. See you on the 14th!
