The City of Kirkland will finalize its purchase of 5.75 miles of the Eastside Rail Corridor from the Port of Seattle tomorrow. The purchase ensures that the land will stay in public ownership, and all future decisions about developing the corridor will be made by Kirkland residents and elected officials. Word is, there’s a world-class park, paved trail and transit line in store.
They’re inviting anyone who’s interested to help them commemorate the occasion on Saturday. Here are the event details:
