On March 13 the Chamber was pleased to host our annual State of the City of Kenmore Luncheon with guest presenter Rob Karlinsey, Kenmore City Manager delivering the address.  Over 160 local business owners, professionals, and civic leaders gathered at the beautiful Inglewood Golf Club to hear the address, connect, network, and enjoy a delicious lunch.

Amongst the many topics Mr. Karlinsey spoke about were updates on Sound Transit’s ST3 transportation, The Lodge at Saint Edward seminary restoration, and the new FlyWay mixed-use apartment, restaurant & retail center.  All of these will add jobs, housing, and better commuting opportunities to Kenmore.

He provided an update on the Lakepointe project and how they will be pursuing other developers. He also announced a fun new Cruise Adventure boat from WhatsSup Stand-Up Paddle & Kayak that soon will be cruising up the Sammamish River with passengers! The Mosquito One will depart from Log Boom Park in Kenmore, travel up to the Bothell Bridge and back to Kenmore!

The Chamber wishes to thank all who attended, City of Kenmore City Manager Rob Karlinsey for speaking, Cascadia College President Dr. Eric Murray for MC’ing, the Inglewood Golf Club for hosting, all our Ambassadors, our musicians Randy Mac Music.
