The city of Mercer Island is hosting a socially-distanced open house at the waterfront in Luther Burbank Park starting Sept. 2 and running through the month. Boaters and other waterfront users are invited to check out the new concepts for the docks, shoreline and related facilities at the open house, which features an outdoor display of project alternatives presented on six posters. After visiting the area, people can fill out an online questionnaire or take home a paper copy to return to the city. The posters, as well as a link to the survey and more, are also available at the project’s webpage: https://letstalk.mercergov.org/lbdock.
Built in 1974, the existing docks have deteriorated to the point that they have less than five years of useful life left. This open house is a first step in designing new docks that were originally proposed in the Luther Burbank Park Master Plan in 2006.
This work is funded in part by a grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Funding Board. For more information, or to arrange a socially-distanced tour of the docks with the project manager, contact Paul West at email@example.com or (206) 275-7833.
