Major Maintenance Project Information
Discovery Park - Chapel Annex and Washington Ave. Demolition and
3801 Discovery Park Blvd Seattle, WA 98199
This project is complete.
Parks completed Demolition of the Chapel Annex and site restoration
in April 2007. The area within the Historic District will be maintained
as lawn in accordance with the Park Vegetation Management Plan.
This project removes the Chapel Annex and Washington Avenue at Discovery
Park and restores approximately 0.12 acres to natural conditions.
Funding for this project is a result of a mitigation settlement
agreement between King County (Metro) and several citizens groups
relative to the expansion of the West Point Treatment Plant (Ordinance
121488). This project was recommended by the West Point Citizens
Advisory Committee (WPCAC) as part of 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). In 2005, the Chapel was designated
a historic landmark and that main structure cannot be removed; however,
the plans to tear-down the annex continue. Operations and maintenance
costs are associated with requisite maintenance of a landmark facility
and are paid by the General Fund, per Ordinance 121488.
