30 Percent Design is Accepted by City Council
On March 1, Mercer Island City Council accepted the Parks and Recreation Commission's recommended 30% design. In addition, it authorized staff's recommendation to combine the docks and waterfront project with the Boiler Building stabilization project for efficient design and construction of both projects. The Boiler Building, restroom and concession stand renovation and the outdoor classroom will be constructed as Phase 1 in 2023, while the docks and other waterfront improvements will be constructed as Phase 2 in 2024. The total cost for both projects is expected to be $6.8 million. Council has authorized a budget of $991,000 to complete the design of both phases. The City will immediately begin applying for the grants identified for these projects and advance the design to meet the project timeline.
