Kirkland: Small Town Fell with Big City Affluence?

In our interview with Carrie Rodriguez and Rachel Dawson, we were told that while Kirkland is often thought of as being affluent, there has always been a desire to, “not be another Bellevue.”  The residents of Kirkland seem to wish to keep their small town feel, keeping sky scrapers out, and clear views in.

As I walked down sidewalk towards the Historic Waterfront, I noticed that the small-town shops all did seem to be two stories or smaller.  Kirkland has managed to keep the beautiful views amongst the bustle of their shops and downtown areas.
