The Alert Northshore Emergency Notification System is a fast communication service allowing the City of Kenmore/NEMCo to notify citizens of an emergency situation. It enables the City to provide mass notification quickly and easily. The service is free to all residents and businesses located within city boundaries.
This system will allow the City of Kenmore/NEMCo to contact participants via a phone call, text, and/or email to provide information about a critical situation, what action needs to be taken, and notification that the situation has been resolved.
The City of Kenmore, City of Lake Forest Park, Northshore Utility District, and the Northshore Fire District have teamed up and formed the Northshore Emergency Management Coalition (NEMCo).
NEMCo’s focus is to engage the “whole community” to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from all types of emergencies and disasters through education, and volunteer coordination. NEMCo provides a number of emergency preparedness training opportunities throughout the year for those interested in volunteering, or for those who just want to be better prepared at home.
In case of an emergency, City staff will access Alert Northshore via a secure portal on the web. A "contact area" will be marked identifying street addresses. Contact information will be matched up electronically to these addresses through the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS). A written message and/or pre-recorded message.
A written and/or pre-recorded message will be sent out to phones and email addresses with information about the incident and possibly instructions for action to be taken.
- Read or Listen the message. Do not ignore it.
- Alert other people. Alert classmates, teachers, co-workers, friends, family and neighbors in the region who may be affected by the alert. Consider your neighbors who may not have access to the alert information or may need assistance if there are any actions that need to be taken.
- Follow any action advised by the message. The instructions will be direct and specific to the particular situation. Be sure to follow them carefully. Do not call 911 unless you are in an emergency situation. Seek more details from local media or authorities.
Your area of the community may not be affected. In this case, you won’t receive a message even if it’s only a block away.
Alert Northshore will be used for significant incidents and events where the timely notification of an affected population or geographic area is essential.

A comprehensive plan is a policy statement adopted by a city to guide decisions affecting the community’s physical development. A comprehensive plan indicates how the City envisions the community’s future, and sets forth strategies for achieving the desired community. A plan generally has three characteristics. First, it is comprehensive: the plan encompasses all the geographic and functional elements which have a bearing on the community’s physical development. Second, it is general: the plan summarizes the major policies and proposals of the City, but does not usually indicate specific locations or establish detailed regulations. Third, it is long range: the plan looks beyond the current pressing issues confronting the community, to the community’s future.
Many of the day-to-day decisions made by City officials can have a significant impact on how the community develops and functions. When these decisions are made in a piecemeal, uncoordinated manner, the result is likely to be land use and development patterns that are conflicting, inefficient and difficult to serve with public facilities and services. Piecemeal decisions frustrate a community’s ability to manage its own destiny. By establishing the community’s long-range general policy for its own physical development, a comprehensive plan coordinates and guides individual decisions in a manner that efficiently moves the community toward its overall goals. While other governmental agencies, financial institutions, developers and citizens all have a substantial impact on the community through their individual investment and development decisions, City government is the only entity with both the opportunity and responsibility to guide the community’s overall development. The City is in the best position to coordinate and balance the often competing needs and pressures that confront the community as it approaches the future.
A comprehensive plan serves many functions, including:
Policy Determination: In adopting a comprehensive plan, a City Council sets forth a coherent set of policies. This process has two functions. First, it encourages City officials to look at the big picture, to step away from current pressing needs to develop overriding policy goals for their community. Second, it allows the City Council to make explicit the policies guiding their decisions so that those policies may be viewed critically and subjected to open and democratic review.
Policy Implementation: A community can move more effectively toward its goals and implement its policies after they have been agreed to and formalized through adoption of a comprehensive plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a basic source of reference for officials as they consider the enactment of ordinances or regulations affecting the community’s physical development (e.g. a zoning ordinance or a particular rezone), and when they make decisions pertaining to public facility investments (e.g. capital improvement programming or construction of a specific public facility). This ensures that the community’s overall goals and policies are furthered, or implemented, by those decisions.
The plan also provides a practical guide to City officials as they administer City ordinances and programs. This ensures that the day-to-day decisions of City staff are consistent with the overall policy direction established by the City’s legislative body.
Communication/Education: The comprehensive plan communicates to the public and to City staff the policy of the legislative body. This allows the staff, the public, private developers, business people, financial institutions, and other interested parties to anticipate what the decisions of the City are likely to be on any particular issue. As such, the plan provides predictability. Everyone is better able to plan activities knowing the probable response to their proposals and to protect investments made on the basis of policy. In addition, the comprehensive plan can educate the public, the business community, the staff and the legislative body itself on the workings, conditions, and issues within their City. This can stimulate interest in the community’s affairs and increase the citizen participation in government.
Basis for Coordination: The plan serves to focus, direct and coordinate the efforts of the departments within City government by providing a general comprehensive statement of the City’s policies and goals.
In addition to the above functions, the plan also provides a comprehensive means for city staff to supply advice to the legislative body; it fulfills certain legal prerequisites for the regulation of land use and development; it serves as a basis for coordination between various governmental agencies; and it serves as a guide to the courts when reviewing the City’s land use decisions.
A Comprehensive Plan is a "policy plan" which provides policy guidance in two forms. First, it can set forth the City’s policies addressing the full range of issues which confront the community. Second, it can graphically illustrate, through the use of the Comprehensive Plan map, how policy should be implemented geographically within the community. These two aspects of the City’s policy are interrelated and must be borne in mind when considering a land use or development decision.
A policy plan is considered to be a dynamic document. It is designed to provide guidance and predictability while being flexible and responsive to changing times and conditions. A good policy plan must be able to balance the need to anticipate the future with the need to be flexible enough to respond to actual demands as they occur.
A comprehensive plan should be based upon sound planning principles and practices. However, it is critical that the comprehensive plan also take into account the uniqueness of the area and the community it addresses.
Do I Need A Permit?
The purpose of a permit is to ensure your construction project meets City codes and is safe for the public. This compliance protects you in several ways. By following the code(s), your project will meet minimum standards of safety. Property insurers may only cover work done with a valid permit. If you decide to sell your property, a permit will assure buyers the standards of your work. And, in the case of a lawsuit, a property owner can show that code requirements were strictly met when working with a permit.
Any owner or authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any gas, mechanical or plumbing system, the installation of which is regulated by building code, or to cause any such work to be done, shall first make application to the building official and obtain the required permit. The eCityGov Alliance has prepared a tipsheet for single family properties with frequent questions about whether a permit is required or not. See the Permits When Required Tipsheet (PDF).

Please visit Northshore Utility District's page on Locating Water and Sewer Lines.
Please visit the Washington 811 website to learn more about safe digging requirements.
Snow & Ice
Per KMC 12.70.050, the adjacent property owner is responsible for removal.
Snow and ice are cleared based on priority routes as shown on the Snow Removal Priority Map. First priority roads will be treated until they are safe to travel. Crews will then move on to second priority roads. If the weather event is still in progress, crews will move back to first priority roads until they are once again safe. Despite the use of four-wheel drive and chains, some streets are still not safely navigable by the City's fleet. A decision to close a road may be made if it is deemed too hazardous to safely treat.
Streets & Sidewalks
Please see the Maintaining Sidewalks flyer for more information. Depending on the situation, sidewalk repairs may be the responsibility of the City or the adjacent property owner.
Public Works Operations repairs potholes on most streets with the exception of private roads and SR 522 (NE Bothell Way) which is a state highway. To report potholes on SR 522, visit WSDOT's online service request portal.
Street sweeping is not request based with the exception of safety issues such as gravel, or illicit discharge issues such as mud tracked on the road. The City has a contract for street sweeping which is scheduled to complete a full city sweep five times per year. The City operates it's own street sweeper weekly on the arterial roads to keep bike lanes free of debris. The City will also do additional city sweeps during the fall and winter months to clean up leafy debris.
Most likely, someone has marked the location of underground utilities. Any individual can request these markings (free of charge) through Washington 811 and the law requires the utilities in the right of way to be marked.
Northshore Utility District maintains fire hydrants through a Hydrant Maintenance Program.
Guardrails are maintained by King County through a service contract with the City of Kenmore. Please submit concerns directly to the City for review and routing.
Please immediately call Public Works at (425) 398-8900 to report water quality violations and illegal dumping. If you call after hours, on-call staff are available to receive your call. Pollutants discharged into the environment can often migrate from the area quickly. Prompt reporting is often needed in order to stop pollutants from spreading and allows the City to hold the responsible party accountable.
The City has a map of the drainage system. When viewing the map, select "stormwater" from the layers menu and the City's entire drainage system will be available to view.
City owned surface water facilities, such as ponds and water quality swales, are typically mowed between May and September. The City owns many facilities and each round of mowing may take 4 - 6 weeks depending on seasonal variations. The City will complete 2 - 3 rounds of mowing per year.
If the catch basin is in a busy roadway or you do not feel safe near it, please call Public Works and someone will assist you. A catch basin may be blocked for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, leaves or debris may be blocking the opening into the catch basin (particularly in fall) and simply removing the blockage from around the surface of the structure will allow it to drain. If the catch basin appears to be backed up internally, please call Public Works.
Adjacent property owners are responsible for maintaining vegetation and aesthetics of ditches. Public Works only conducts maintenance required for the structural integrity and function of the ditch.
Typically, the City only operates and maintains the drainage system in public right-of-way and on City owned properties. Maintenance of drainage systems on private property is typically the responsibility of the property owner unless a recorded easement was granted to the City (or King County) for the purpose of maintaining the drainage system.
No, ditch filling is generally not allowed. Drainage systems utilizing ditches are not designed to function the same as systems utilizing curbs, gutters and catch basins and intermittent ditch filling often leads to system wide issues, add polluted runoff and creates flooding problems downstream.
Please visit the On-Street Parking page for more information.
Police enforce illegally parked vehicles on public streets. Please report illegal parking to King County Sheriff Non-Emergency Dispatch at (206) 296-3311 or report online. City staff does not have the ability to ticket and/or tow illegally parking vehicles.
The Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program is currently under review and this FAQ will be updated soon.
Washington State Department of Transportation operates and maintains signals on SR 522 and within 1 block of the highway. More information on the 14 signals within Kenmore, including ownership and maintenance responsibility, visit the Traffic page in Engineering. City staff works closely with King County and WSDOT. Please submit concerns regarding traffic signals directly to the City for review and routing to the appropriate jurisdiction.
Please see the Intersection Sight Distance flyer for more information.
Trees & Vegetation in the Right of Way
Please see the Maintaining Vegetation and Right of Way Maintenance flyers for more information. Per KMC 12.70.040, maintenance of planting strips, including trees, tree limbs that protrude over the road and sidewalk, shrubbery, weeds, grass or other ground cover, will be the responsibility of the abutting property owner. Vegetation in planting strips will be kept in a condition that does not impair the use by the traveling public of the right of way.
Walkways and Waterways
Walkways & Waterways is a pedestrian and bicycle safety and waterfront park improvement bond measure that was approved by Kenmore voters on the November 8, 2016 ballot. The measure allows the City to issue bonds to pay for 1) new sidewalks and bike lanes on Juanita Drive and 68th Avenue, from Kenmore’s southern city limit to its northern city limit and 2) public waterfront improvements at Log Boom Park, Rhododendron Park, and Squire’s Landing Park.
You can learn more about Walkways & Waterways and the projects by visiting the Walkways & Waterways page.
The Walkways & Waterways bond measure is the result of the City’s “Imagine Kenmore” public outreach initiative. This initiative began summer 2015 and included a number of public meetings, online interactive methods, and two randomized statistically valid phone surveys to solicit public input on priorities for pedestrian and cyclist safety and park improvements. Results from this outreach effort concluded that sidewalks and bike lanes on major roads and connecting residents with the City’s public waterfront are top priorities. The Walkways & Waterways project list above the results of the outreach effort.
The total cost of the sidewalk, bike lane, and waterfront/open space park improvement projects, including bond issuance costs, is estimated at $19.75 million. View the cost estimates.
Property owners will pay for the projects through increased property taxes for the terms of the bonds (20 years per bond).
The estimated cost for the owner of a median-valued home in the City, $438,000, is $140.16/year or $11.68/month.
No. The bond payments will be constant over the terms of the bonds, similar to a conventional home mortgage. So if property values go up, the tax rate will go down in order to keep the bond payment constant (Property Values X Tax Rate = Bond Payment). As more properties come onto the tax rolls through new development, the cost will be shared by these new properties, and the annual cost for all property owners will go down slightly.
Does the bond measure mean the City will go into debt? How much debt does the City currently have on the books?
The bond measure will result in the City issuing bonds (debt) in the amount of $19.75 million. This debt amount will be paid off through increased property tax revenue over the 20-year terms of the bonds. The City of Kenmore currently has no debt obligations.
Has the City of Kenmore ever gone to the voters for a bond measure or any other tax increase ballot measure?
No. Kenmore incorporated as a city in 1998 and has never placed a tax measure on the ballot, until this proposed measure for the November 2016 ballot.
Projects will be completed over the next seven years:
- 68th Avenue - Two downtown sidewalk and bike lane segments on 68th Avenue would be constructed in 2019. Because of design and permitting requirements, the remainder of the 68th Avenue improvements would be completed by 2022.
- Juanita Drive - Due to grant funding cycles as well as right-of-way and permitting requirements, Juanita Drive sidewalk and bike lane improvements will likely be built in segments from 2019 to 2023.
- Log Boom Park - Waterfront improvements need permit approval from various state and federal agencies. Such approval and associated time for design should result in completion by 2023.
- Rhododendron Park - The boardwalk, trail, and associated open space enhancements have already undergone substantial permit review. As a result, this project is anticipated to be constructed in 2019, if not sooner.
- Squire’s Landing Park - Similar to Log Boom Park, waterfront improvements and natural open space enhancements require permit approval from various agencies and should result in project completion by 2023.
The City has limited funding for capital projects, especially of this size. Most of the City’s General Fund and Street Fund budgets pay for operational costs such as public safety services (police, jail, etc.), street maintenance, park and facility maintenance, and administration.
Property taxes pay for services provided by various jurisdictions, including the Northshore School District, the State of Washington, the Northshore Fire District, City of Kenmore, King County, Port of Seattle, and others. Just under 11 percent of your property tax goes to the City of Kenmore. Property taxes received by the City of Kenmore pay for operational costs such as public safety, parks and facility maintenance, code compliance, land use planning, and administration.
I see that to complete the Juanita Drive sidewalks, other sources of funds are needed. What happens if you don’t get those funds?
Juanita Drive is a corridor of regional significance and should compete well for grant funds. Of all the Walkways & Waterways projects, Juanita Drive is the most well positioned to obtain State and Federal grant funding. The $5 million for Juanita Drive included in the proposed bond measure will serve as a local match for the grant funding, which increases the likelihood of receiving grants for the project.
Costs to maintain new park, bike lane and sidewalk improvements after construction will be added to existing facility maintenance costs. Because the City is already providing maintenance services for these three parks and two roads, the City anticipates an incremental increase in maintenance costs starting in the early 2020’s after project completion. The City is currently conducting a thorough Parks and Public Works maintenance services analysis with the goal of improving and creating efficiencies in the way resources are allocated to park and road maintenance activities. This services analysis will include the future improvements from this bond measure. In addition, general contractors who will construct these improvements will be required to provide plant establishment and warranties for 1-2 years after project completion. Lastly, volunteerism at city parks has grown substantially in recent years and has proven to be a valuable supplement to park maintenance resources. The City’s park volunteer program will continue to grow and will likely help further offset maintenance costs at the three waterfront parks in this bond measure.
Pedestrian and bicycle safety are a top priority of the community and the Kenmore City Council. As a result of several pedestrian and bicycle fatalities in recent years, the city stepped up its efforts to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety, including the adoption of a Target Zero program. The Imagine Kenmore process, including statistically valid phone surveys, concluded that our citizens continue to ask for new sidewalks on arterial roadways as a top priority to improve safety. Acting now will take advantage of current construction costs and interest rates before they escalate in the future.
Next to pedestrian and bicycle safety, the Imagine Kenmore process found that citizens have a strong desire to connect the public with the City’s waterfront. In other words, citizens are asking for more opportunities for the public to access Lake Washington and the Sammamish River, and this need has been repeatedly expressed over the years. Current low-interest rates, taking advantage of construction costs before they escalate further, and lead time needed for environmental permitting all contributed to bringing these projects forward for voter consideration this year.
Yes, the bonds can be paid off after 10 years. However, the City is planning to collect property taxes from the taxpayers over 20 years. The City is only allowed to collect property taxes in an amount needed to pay annual debt service, so the City does not anticipate having funds available to retire the bonds prior to the final maturity. However, depending on future interest rates, the City may have an opportunity to refinance the bonds and reduce the amount of taxes collected to pay debt service.
