Association Wrapping Up Fight against Kirkland Sprinkler Proposal
Dec. 6, 2013
We have continued our efforts to defeat an onerous fire-sprinkler requirement for all new single-family homes in the city of Kirkland. Your Association has met with most councilmembers, answering questions about possible conflicts between the International Residential Code and the code as adopted in Washington state and Kirkland. Fortunately, a solid majority on the council is decisively aligned against a fire sprinkler mandate. Our plan moving forward is to wrap up discussion with the council and advise city staff as to our discussion with the council. Please contact King County Manager David Hoffman with any questions at (425) 460-8224.
