New Funding for Chinese Reconciliation Park Phase III
Here's a bit of news from last week's City Manager's report to Council:
The City was awarded the following grant: Washington State Heritage Capital Projects Fund - Funding for the Chinese Reconciliation Park Phase III. The project will build on the successful complement of Phases I and II development and add such enhancement features as the perimeter fencing with Chinese motif, interpretive and wayfinding signage, parking lightings, and landscaping and irrigation system, that are necessary to make the park more inviting and convenient for visitors to appreciate and benefit from its historic significance, heritage context, educational functions, and recreation opportunities. The City will be awarded $388,000 with a City cash match of $60,000. which was included in the current biennial budget.
With this project funded; repairs to Old Town Dock reopened to the public; and Ruston Waterwalk, Point Defiance missing link, and Waterway (or is Frank Herbert?) Park all in varying stages of completion, the waterfront is looking pretty good. Not to mention the prospect of additional project funds via Port fee-in-lieu dollars...
