Many Kirklanders knew and loved Eric Shields, our former Planning Director for the city, who sadly passed away late last year from cancer. He was instrumental in contributing to the vision for Kirkland Urban, and therefore it has been decided to dedicate the Great Hall in the Urban North building to Eric. An honor well deserved. This space will be available to the community for scheduled events soon. The bleacher-style space can accommodate 35-50 people and will be available on a first-come first-serve basis through the on-site management office.
