JERISICH PARK FLOAT EXTENSION & PUMPOUT-- (updated 3-21-14)
PROJECT DESCRIPTION -- Jerisich Park floats currently provide over 420-ft of transient moorage and an aging seasonal pumpout facility. Replacement of the undersized pumpout equipment will include an 8x30-ft wrap-around float at the end of the existing Jerisich facility. It will provide added flexibility for water-side transportation including pick-up / drop-off space for commercial and event-driven use. The project is funded (in part) through a grant from the Washington State Parks Department.
ANTICIPATED PROJECT SCHEDULE -- The project was awarded to Rognlin Construction. Construction to begin late spring 2014 with anticipated completion on May 30, 2014.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION -- Design and construct a sidewalk along at least one side of Point Fosdick Drive between Harbor Country Drive (across from the Public Library) and Briarwood Lane. Design will be completed for both sides of Point Fosdick and the project will be constructed on both sides as budget allows. The project includes low-impact development elements such as porous pavement and a bio swale. Underground conduit will also be installed for a future street lights.
Funding for this project includes a grant from the WA Department of Ecology and local City funds. The amount budgeted for the project design and construction is $390,000.
ANTICIPATED PROJECT SCHEDULE -- The project is currently under design and the City is pursuing the required permits. It is anticipated that the project will be constructed this summer, beginning as soon as school is out in late June.
IMPACTS TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC -- During the course of construction, there will be traffic control to allow the sidewalk and bio swale construction to occur safely. There will likely be significant intermittent traffic impacts on days when the porous concrete sidewalk is poured. The equipment used on this project will cause loud noise and vibrations as the work is performed.
Please consider alternate traffic routes during construction. Access to local residences and businesses will be maintained at all times.
