The city of Kirkland is accepting ideas for its Neighborhood Safety Program (NSP).
If residents have ideas for projects that could improve pedestrian, bicycle and/or auto safety in their neighborhood or have been thinking about a concept for an improvement that would make it safer for children to walk, bike or ride the bus to school, they can submit them to the NSP.
According to a press release, the NSP is an opportunity for residents to energize their neighborhood associations by empowering them to work collaboratively with city staff to identify, prioritize and address safety improvements in Kirkland.
Each year, there is a total of $350,000 available for projects citywide that are less than $50,000.
For more information, visit tinyurl.com/y22kvmqz webpage to submit an idea online, or email Kari Page at KPage@kirklandwa.gov with the location and safety concerns.
