Address: 3801 Discovery Park Blvd Seattle, WA 98199

Project Description

Budget: $50,000
Construction begins: First Quarter 2007
Project complete: 2007

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.
