The feedback hub will be open until Sept. 30.

The City of Kirkland is looking for feedback from community members on the city’s 2023 Draft Surface Water Master Plan which outlines strategies to help the city protect the environment, meet the needs of the community, and follow state, federal, and local regulations when it comes to the water.

Community members can submit feedback on the newly updated plan through Sept. 30. The online feedback form can be found here.

According to the city, the plan outlines a strategy for funding and staff resources for the most efficient use of public dollars.

The plan outlines proposed capital improvement projects which include 22 “high priority” projects with a total cost estimate of $40.1 million. The plan recommends 9 of these projects for completion in the next six years with a total cost of $11.2 Million. Most of the proposed projects invest funding in infrastructure improvements.

It also includes an outline of proposed actions to be taken, most of which are aimed at evaluating the city’s water quality, infrastructure and aquatic habitat.

Lastly, the 2023 Draft Surface Water Master Plan includes a plan for proposed implementations of the strategy and methods by which it could be funded.
