Waterfront Seattle Announces Activities at Pier 62/63

SEATTLE — Today Waterfront Seattle, with the help of Seattle Parks and Recreation crews, will place approximately twenty yellow Adirondack chairs on Pier 62/63. These chairs will accompany the large yellow symbol that was painted on the deck of Pier 62/63 last week using non-toxic, non-permanent yellow stain. The symbol is a portion of the Waterfront Seattle logo and is commonly used to emphasize an important idea or place. As painted on Pier 62/63 it also mirrors the ring of Elliott Bay.

The temporary installation is the first in a series of small, community-building activities planned at Pier 62/63 over the next few months. This small-scale reinvigoration of Pier 62/63 kicks-off the outreach leading up to the next Waterfront Seattle public meeting planned for late October 2011. At that meeting and throughout the fall the City will be asking for direct public feedback on the proposed early design ideas for the waterfront.

Waterfront Seattle is a civic project led by the Seattle Department of Transportation, the Department of Planning and Development, and Seattle Parks and Recreation. The project aims to create a waterfront for all and reconnect Seattle to its waterfront.

At the heart of Waterfront Seattle is a partnership between the City of the Seattle and the entire community to create a dynamic public waterfront. To become involved in the project visit www.waterfrontseattle.org, like “Waterfront Seattle” on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @WaterfrontSEA.
