On Wednesday, December 9th at 10:00am, KUOW Puget Sound Public Radio 94.9 FM, will be hosting a discussion about "the benefits and failures of annexing." The Kirkland City Council is considering annexing the neighborhoods of Kingsgate, Upper Juanita and Finn Hill, all of which lie in unincorporated King County.
From the program description:
Eastside residents recently considered incorporating three small neighborhoods into Kirkland. The annexation came up just .06 percent shy of the 60 percent needed to pass. Proponents could still force the issue through the City Council. What are the benefits and failures of annexing?
