At last week’s quarterly meeting with staff from Kirkland, the city announced the release of its Housing Dashboard. This public facing tool will track how the middle housing policy is working since adoption, including graphs to illustrate the increase of cottage and ADU permits. It was also reported they are struggling with staffing levels, much like other jurisdictions, especially for electrical inspectors. As a result of these challenges, they are reporting four weeks to first review comments for single family building permits. This is 1-2 weeks behind the adopted target turnarounds.
