The Kirkland Police Department encourages Kirkland neighborhoods to participate in the 31st annual National Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday, August 5th, 2014. "National Night Out" is a nationwide campaign aimed at involving communities in crime and drug prevention awareness. Activities that neighborhoods may want to host include cookouts, flashlight walks or contests. The Kirkland Police and Fire Departments will be attending community events between 6 and 9 p.m. To show support of National Night Out, Kirkland residents are encouraged to get together with neighbors and friends. Turn your porchlights on, come outside and take a stand against crime with your neighbors. For National Night Out information, visit www.nationalnightout.org, or to register your event with the City of Kirkland, click here for the neighborhood block party application form.
*Block party fees will be waived for National Night Out events held on August 5th, 2014!
Two projects will receive funding after being submitted to Kirkland's Neighborhood Safety Program. In this pilot program, $150,000 was offered up for projects in the Juanita, Finn Hill, and Kingsgate neighborhoods. $56,600 of that money has been allocated for the two Juanita projects.
Rapid Flashing Beacons will be installed at the crosswalk on NE 132nd St at 105th Ave NE. This is just west of Juanita High School and has been the site of accidents and near misses involving pedestrians.
A trail connection will be built from Forbes Creek Drive to the Cross Kirkland Corridor between 113th Ct NE and 115th Ct NE.
The Neighborhood Safety Program is being piloted as a program that identifies and prioritizes safety improvement projects. The program was developed collaboratively between the Kirkland Alliance of Neighborhoods and city staff. The program will have an annual cycle citywide to address the most important safety needs within Kirkland’s neighborhoods. Citywide implementation of the program is expected to start in 2015. For more information about the Neighborhood Safety Program, visit www.kirklandwa.gov/neighborhoods.

Help keep our Kirkland streams clean by preventing car wash rinse water from entering our storm drains. Car washing in or on residential streets, or through fundraising events, causes soap, oil, grease, and other chemicals to enter our streams. Even small amounts of these pollutants are toxic to fish and other aquatic life.
In addition to affecting our environment, it’s also against the law - local, state, and federal regulations require “nothing but rain down the storm drain.” (Kirkland Municipal Code Chapter 15.52)
How can your car wash be fish-friendly? For residential car washing, choose a commercial car wash. At these locations, polluted wash water is cleaned and treated in a sanitary sewer system prior to discharge in Puget Sound. If you choose to wash your car at home, do so in a gravel or grassy area, allowing soil to soak up the water rather than run off into storm drains.
How can fundraising events be fish-friendly? The City of Kirkland requires that charity car washes use a special Car Wash Kit to ensure polluted wash water is diverted to a soil area or sanitary sewer. If your charity group is considering holding an event, check out this free kit from Kirkland City Hall, or hold the event at a business that keeps one on site. Better yet, consider raising money by selling commercial car wash tickets through the Charity Car Wash Program instead.
