The Kenmore City Council approved the Economic Development Strategy in June 2009, following the plan's development by an Advisory Committee, Berk and Associates and City staff. Among the Strategy's key goals and actions are:
Establish Kenmore's Image by Promoting Assets and High Quality of Life
Support Existing Businesses and Pursue Opportunities to Expand Employment
Continue efforts to create a Vibrant, Walkable Downtown
Advance the Community's Connection to the Waterfront
Implementation is underway through producing marketing materials that highlight Kenmore's assets, revamping the City's development review process, continued progress on street, sidewalk and signage improvements in the Downtown and SR 522 and a strong partnership with Bastyr University, Kenmore's largest employer.
Thank you to the following individuals that served on the Advisory Committee: Bob Hensel, Chair; Todd Banks; George Cody; Bob Donovan; Dennis Hill; Bill Leak; Doug Levy; Lizanne Lyons; Keoki McCarthy; Dan Rosenfeld; and Michael Vanderlinde.
