The next public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 27 between 6 pm – 8 pm at Kitsap Lake Elementary School. These meetings are intended to present design findings and gather input from the community. Meetings will be announced via the City’s website, City social media, and the project’s email list.

In June 2017, the City received a $1,750,000 Safe Routes to School Grant to install a sidewalk along Harlow Drive from Kitsap Way to Osprey Circle. In addition to the sidewalks, lighting, school speed zone signs, and crosswalk treatments will be installed. The new sidewalk will provide a safe route for children to walk to Kitsap Lake Elementary and vastly improve the walkability of the Kitsap Lake neighborhood.
