Seattle Parks is working, in the larger context of city planning for the downtown central waterfront and the Alaska Way Viaduct, on options for replacement of Piers 62/63, and upgrades and improvements to Waterfront Park. Structural concerns at both Piers 62/63 and Waterfront Park have prompted this analysis. The Central Waterfront Master Parks Plan Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) is the final document in the SEPA process for the adoption of a Central Waterfront Master Parks Plan. This document includes analyses previously presented in the Draft EIS that was issued June 27, 2006 as well as public comment on that document and Seattle Parks and Recreation’s responses to such comments.
