LETTER | Kirkland Aqua - Potala Village Demolition Restrictions, No Building Permit

During this very busy week when many are out of town, there has been approval for a demolition permit for Potala Village.  We might expect  work to be done on-site at this time, so please keep your eyes open if  you are in town.

 

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO BUILDING PERMIT APPROVED AT THIS TIME.

 

NO TREES ARE TO BE REMOVED.  While only some trees will be fenced off, city staff has advised that NO TRESS ARE TO BE DAMAGED OR REMOVED.

 

Citizens who were concerned by the appearance of the backhoe and what was later explained as an "accident" damaging the face of one building now asked how to protect the trees from similar accidents.

 

ANY THREAT TO A TREE should be reported immediatly to PLANNING STAFF.  If they are unavailable, or if it is not a work day for the city, we have been told to contact KIRKLAND POLICE.
