Good news! On Tuesday night, July 15, 2014, the Kirkland City Council authorized the Parks staff to move forward with the purchase of another parcel of land to expand Juanita Heights Park. The parcel was in a family trust (Colacurcio Family)and is being sold to the City for $10,000, which is 1/5 of it’s assessed value! Great job City of Kirkland! The Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance (FHNA) is still working to acquire more than 8 acres adjacent to the park.
Small Trust parcel is circled in blue. Parcels in red are for sale. The Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance is actively engaged in seeking city and county support. Funding is next challenge.
