This Tuesday, September 16th, The Kirkland City Council meeting will address the BNSF rail/trail issue, item 9c on the agenda.  Come to the meeting at Kirkland City Hall, The Council chamber, 123 Fifth Avenue at 7 PM, Tuesday.  This is another opportunity for the public to voice their opinions to The Kirkland City Council. The Eastside Trail Advocates will be there to support a trail along the line. Check out their site to learn more about the trail issues.

Dave Ramsay spoke eloquently about Kirkland’s need for walking trails at The Kirkland Highlands dedication of the Cotton Hill Park trail.  He uses this very trail for his walking commute to Kirkland’s City Hall. City Manager Ramsay said he envisions a city connected by urban paths so people would be able to walk through the entire community.  He believes walking is:

  • the magic bullet to health.
  • Promotes a sense of community.
  • Contributes to public safety.
  • Reduces car trips.
  • Enhances our environment.

I’m hoping the City Council listens to Dave Ramsay’s words.
