The PATs will start meeting in late 2013 and continue into the first quarter of 2014. (see schedules below) The work will culminate in a recommendation to the Parks Superintendent on the future of the moorages.

In August, Seattle Parks hosted a meeting to give an update on the Request for Proposal (RFP) process for the moorages. After hearing your concerns, Mayor Mike McGinn agreed that we should stop the RFP process and change direction. He committed $4 million in his proposed 2014 budget for repairs to the South Leschi moorage--the most immediate need.

  • Protect shoreline habitat
  • Improve public accessibility—broader community benefit—without compromising security
  • Provide the best marinas on Lake Washington
  • Enhance sailing heritage at Leschi
  • Reinvest more revenues back into the moorages
  • Negotiate a new concessionaire agreement with performance measures and regular reviews
