Over the years, we are asked, “Who Is Who in Kirkland Downtown?”  We can now reveal all.

But first-

The Kirkland Downtown Association wrapped up a successful 2015! The commitment of the community, hundreds of volunteers, corporate sponsors, the City of Kirkland, and our Title Sponsor, Keller Williams, we were able to make an extreme impact to the quality of life for those who live, work, and play in Kirkland.

It became obvious that the KDA was ready for a new life near the end of the year, and the decision was made to completely change the organization into one that is full of energy, ideas, and manpower.   In January, the KDA officially became it’s own independent entity, without organizational attachment to the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce. The KDA will, however, continue to work in a collaborative spirit with the Chamber on many events in Kirkland.
