This should be a conversation about if we should build the ARC | Letter

  • Oct 4, 2015 at 5:00AM

This shouldn't be a debate about how to fund the Kirkland ARC [Aquatics and Recreation Center], but whether to build it at all, especially lacking a financial commitment form any other Eastside city. Ask yourself why no other city is interested.

City needs to change MPD, vote no | Letter

  • Oct 4, 2015 at 4:00AM

During a recent discussion with one of our city council members I was informed that language in Kirkland ordinance O-4485, which allows the Metropolitan Park District (MPD) to raise taxes for "other future parks and recreational facilities and programs," was necessary because you cannot limit the scope of an MPD by law. And that they were advised by councsel that an MPD could not be limited to one project such as the ARC [Aquatics, Recreation and Community] Center.

Question of the Day

Do you like the name ‘Kirkland Urban’ for the development that will replace Parkplace?
