KIRKLAND – The City of Kirkland is pushing ahead with its plan to put an 800-unit townhouse complex on an old industrial site near A-40.

The development would sit adjacent to the Lacey Green neighbourhood on land that was occupied by Merck Canada, a pharmaceutical company.

But not everyone is thrilled with the idea.

“There are way too many units going in there,” said Cherine Cheftechi, a Lacey Green resident.

The site was abandoned five years ago and includes a soccer field and an old industrial park.

Kirkland will hold a vote on the project Monday at 7 p.m. at city hall.
