The following letter is from King County Councilmember Jane Hague in response to a letter to the editor posted here: http://www.kirklandviews.com/archives/18944 It has always been my goal as the Eastside's regional representative on the King County Council to work with city officials and stakeholders to bring consensus to outstanding issues.
It has been a pleasure to work successfully for the Kirkland Performance Center, the transit center, acquisition of parklands, annexation, fireworks ban and for better fire service.
In this same vein, I’m looking forward to joining with the three landowners of the South Kirkland Park & Ride (Kirkland, Bellevue, and King County) in resolving zoning inconsistencies and increasing access to the second busiest interchange along 405 and 520 (after 405/SR 167).
The Park & Ride is at capacity and buses need better ingress and egress. We will explore other services to minimize vehicle miles travelled, and we will do this through a regional conversation.
All good projects need to be thoroughly vetted, and I know Kirkland residents will be a valuable asset to this project.
As always, I am available through email, phone, or in person.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
