The Station Area Plan Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (Draft SEIS) will be available on January 5 at https://www.kirklandwa.gov/stationareaplan. Submit written comments between Jan 5 and Feb 5 to Allison Zike at az...@kirklandwa.gov.
An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) looks at possible impacts and mitigation measures for several plan alternatives being studied, across elements like air quality, aesthetics, stormwater, transportation, housing, public services, and more. The Draft SEIS provides information to help pick the best plan for the future of the Station Area.
