Walkways & Waterways is a pedestrian and bicycle safety and waterfront park improvement bond measure that will be proposed to Kenmore voters on the November 8, 2016 ballot. The measure, if approved, would raise $19.75 million over 20 years to pay for 1) new sidewalks and bike lanes on Juanita Drive and 68th Avenue and 2) public waterfront improvements at Log Boom Park, Rhododendron Park, and Squire’s Landing Park.

The Walkways & Waterways proposed bond measure is the result of the City’s “Imagine Kenmore” public outreach initiative. This initiative began last summer 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. If approved, Proposition 1 would fund the projects selected from the Imagine Kenmore initiative over the next seven years.
