Luther Burbank Dock Design Moves Forward
On May 18, Mercer Island City Council approved the recommended Concept Design for the Luther Burbank Dock and Adjacent Waterfront. City Council also appropriated the funding to move the design forward to the 30% stage, which will provide decision-makers cost and permitting analysis. The design includes an expanded beach area and bulkhead steps for improved shoreline access, and waterfront plaza renovations to address aging facilities there. The 30% design will be completed this summer and fall. The Parks and Recreation Commission will review preliminary design products before making its recommendations to City Council on how to proceed.
