Discovery Park - Capehart
Planning: Through April 2010
Design: Spring 2010 - Spring 2011
Construction: Summer 2011
Completion: Winter 2011
This project will provide habitat restoration to approximately 24 acres of land.
Demolition of the existing housing units by the Navy has been completed and the property has been turned over to Seattle Parks for restoration efforts.
The general approach will be to create local habitat that is typical of Discovery Park, and in particular since the City began habitat restoration of the first portions of Fort Lawton back in the 70's. Included will be a variety of meadows, forest thickets, and typical under story vegetation.
This project was recommended by the West Point Citizens Advisory Committee as part of the 2005 revision to the list of projects recommended in 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).
