Discovery Park - Lighthouse Restoration

 

Address: 3801 Discovery Park Blvd Seattle, WA 98199


Current Status

Fall 2011
Currently, copper gutter fabrication is underway on site at the Discovery Park Lighthouse. Once gutters are soldered together, LONG Painting will clean and paint them and roofing work will follow.

In September of 2009 the lighthouse was wrapped with a scaffold enclosure that allowed Parks to strip the lead paint off the exterior and protected the crews performing wood, masonry, metal and plaster work. The scaffold was removed in June of 2010 and the public can view the restored exterior of the lighthouse.

The next project will be the reroofing of the keepers quarters in spring 2011

Project Description

Budget: $600,000
Due to efforts from the community, Discovery Park's Anne Bentley and Park's Charles Ng, The Lighthouse Project was awarded $300,000.00 from The Washington State Heritage Capital Projects Fund. This funding will be made available to the project in late 2009.

Construction begins: First Quarter 2009
Project complete:

This project provides for the restoration of the West Point Lighthouse located at the westerly tip of Discovery Park. In 2003, the Department of Parks and Recreation received permission to submit an application to the United States Department of Interior to acquire the West Point Light Station (Ordinance 121184). The Department was approved for the acquisition, and accepted the deed for the Lighthouse in 2006.

This project was recommended by the West Point Citizens Advisory Committee (WPCAC) as part of the 2005 revision to the list of projects recommended in the 2004 Memorandum of Agreement between King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks and the City of Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation for use of mitigation funds pursuant to Section 1. (d) of the West Point Settlement Agreement (Ordinance 121488).

This project brings the lighthouse into compliance with current building code and will facilitate ADA access. Hazardous material abatement will be conducted along with a general rehabilitation of the interior and exterior shell of the building.
