Finn Hill Plan Re-Zoning – Planning Commission Mtg May 25

Dear Finn Hill Neighbors:  The Finn Hill neighborhood plan – which will define how Finn Hill will develop over the coming decades — will be reviewed by the Planning Commission on Thursday (tomorrow) at 7pm in the Council meeting room at City Hall, 123 Fifth Avenue in downtown Kirkland.  The Commissioners will also be giving guidance to City staff on how certain areas of Finn Hilll might be upzoned or downzoned.

If you care about the future of Finn Hill, please make every effort to attend this meeting. At the beginning of the meeting, you will have the opportunity to tell the Commissioners what you think is the right future for Finn Hill.  Your presence at the meeting and your remarks to the Commissioners carry a lot of weight — so please take advantage of this chance to exercise your influence as a taxpayer and a voter.

And click here to access our unofficial Quick Start Guide to the plan and the zoning changes. We’ve tried to give you a simple, fast way to spot what’s most important without having to become a planning expert. We think you can get good idea of what’s going on in just 15 minutes.

So, please come down to City Hall on Thursday evening. Bring your friends. This is your neighborhood and this is your chance to influence how it will grow over the next 20 years.

If you have questions, by all means send us a note: board@finnhillalliance.org.

We hope to see you (and hear your comments) on Thursday.

President, Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance
