SEQUIM – The Sequim City Council has unanimously approved $140,000 in the 2016 budget to support the development of 60 - 70 additional parking stalls and improve vehicle circulation at the Water Reuse Demonstration Site north of Carrie Blake Park, and to increase the safety for park users and visitors.
The approved concept includes a new connector road that would provide access to the parking from the existing parking lot off of Blake Avenue in front of the Interpretive Center. Traffic will flow one way from the new road on the west and move east to exit on Rhodefer Road.
Members of the Sequim Family Advocates Board of Directors are enthusiastic about the plan and expressed their appreciation for the support of the City Council and cooperation with City staff to come up with a workable plan.
“This concept is consistent with the proposed Master Site Plan for Carrie Blake Park and the Water Reuse Site, and will support the growth of the park in the future,” said Assistant to the City Manager and Parks Manager Joe Irvin.
In addition to the funding approved by the Sequim City Council, the Sequim Family Advocates, in coordination with the City of Sequim, will work to secure additional funds from the Haller Foundation and other sources. It is estimated that the project will cost a total of $318,000.
