Waterline Replacement and North Parking Lot Restoration Funding provided per the West Point Settlement Agreement
This is a result of a settlement agreement with Metro and several citizens groups in 1991, and adds money to the existing Shoreline Park Improvement Fund (SPIF). The original SPIF amount of $25 million, received by Parks in the 1990s, was spent on improving and acquiring shoreline parkland throughout the city as well as making improvements to Discovery Park.
In 2003, a citizens committee convened by King County, the West Point Citizens Advisory Committee, recommended a slate of projects. In July and August of last year, we conducted a public review process, including a hearing by the Board of Park Commissioners. Superintendent Ken Bounds made recommendations to the City Council, largely agreeing with the committee. These projects (see list below) focus on improving the park landscape by demolishing buildings, removing pavement, and improving the natural habitat throughout the park. All of the work is consistent with the park’s master plan.
The most controversial recommendation is to demolish the chapel, located in the south end of the park. The citizens committee recommended removing the chapel; the Board of Park Commissioners recommended keeping it (at its Sept. 11, 2003 meeting). The City Council will ultimately decide which projects will be funded.
