The City of Sequim to an Hold Information Open House on Carrie Blake Community Park and Blake Avenue

SEQUIM—The City of Sequim Public Works Department invites the public to an Informational Open House on Wednesday, May 3 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 West Cedar Street, to learn more about two upcoming projects that are in close proximity to one another and both slated to begin construction in summer 2017.

The first project is the Carrie Blake Community Park access road, waterline extension, and pickleball court project. This project will construct a new access road, which will provide an entrance into the park from North Blake Avenue near the Sequim Trinity United Methodist Church. As part of the work, a water main will be extended into the park, and the existing Blake Avenue entrance will be pedestrianized by closing it to motor vehicles. In partnership with the Sequim Picklers, the project will also construct eight pickleball courts, located immediately east of the skate park as show in the adopted Carrie Blake Park Master Plan. The plan can be viewed on the City of Sequim website at http://wa-sequim.civicplus.com/index.aspx?nid="325."

The second project is the Blake Avenue sidewalk infill project. This project entails improving pedestrian connectivity along the west side of North Blake Avenue by constructing a sidewalk near the Gebhardt Zwicker Park, where a gap currently exists. The project also includes replacing curb ramps and driveway approaches that do not meet the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, and providing a new marked crosswalk across Blake Avenue at the new park entrance.

For more information, please contact City Engineer Matt Klontz at (360) 582-2472 or mklontz@sequimwa.gov.
