AN ORDINANCE relating to the Central Waterfront Project, authorizing the execution of a Memorandum of Agreement concerning funding for the Parks Central Waterfront Piers Rehabilitation project (K732493) between The City of Seattle and the Friends of Waterfront Seattle; authorizing the Director of the Seattle Department of Transportation to accept non-City funds on behalf of the City; amending Ordinance 124927, which adopted the 2016 Budget, including the 2016-2021 Capital Improvement Program (CIP); changing appropriations to the Seattle Department of Transportation and the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation; revising allocations for certain projects in the 2016-2021 CIP; and ratifying and confirming certain prior acts.

body

WHEREAS, on August 13, 2012, the City Council unanimously adopted Resolution 31399 (“the Resolution”), expressing support for the Central Waterfront Strategic Plan (“the Strategic Plan”), which included a funding plan for long-term development of the Waterfront and the Concept Design and Framework Plan which established a program of public parks and transportation improvements as well as a long-term vision for the post-Viaduct waterfront; and

WHEREAS, the Resolution directed staff to “identify ‘early win’ projects, i.e., projects that can be implemented prior to Alaskan Way Viaduct demolition” to produce visible progress on the Waterfront Improvement Program; and

WHEREAS, the Resolution also supported the formation of the not-for-profit Friends of the Waterfront Seattle to help implement the Strategic Plan, recognizing that other cities have partnered with non-profit organizations to provide consistent, strong leadership to realize visionary plans for complex, urban public spaces; and

WHEREAS, the 2016-2021 Adopted Capital Improvement Program includes the Parks and Recreation Central Waterfront Piers Rehabilitation project (K732493) and the Alaskan Way Main Corridor project (TC367330), two key capital projects of the Central Waterfront program, and the Elliott Bay Seawall project (TC367320); and

WHEREAS, the Office of the Waterfront, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), and Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) have identified an opportunity to combine the final phase of construction of the Elliott Bay Seawall with construction of the Pier 62/63 Phase 1 Rebuild, which is part of the Central Waterfront Piers Rehabilitation project, allowing for more cost-effective contracting and construction management; and

WHEREAS, the Pier 62/63 Phase 1 Rebuild will address an important deferred major maintenance need, allowing a critical park facility to return to public use for a diverse range of public programming after over 12 years of absence; and

WHEREAS, the non-profit Friends of Waterfront Seattle have committed to raise $8,000,000 in philanthropic funding to support implementation of the Pier 62/63 Phase 1 Rebuild as an “early win” project that can also demonstrate its capacity to coordinate on the fundraising for and the construction and operation of a key element of the Waterfront program; and

WHEREAS, the Seattle Park District Oversight Committee has expressed support for amending the Seattle Park District financial plan to reprogram funding from the Park District operating program to its capital program for this important major maintenance project; and

WHEREAS, the Seattle Park District has amended the Seattle Park District financial plan to allocate $4.35 million for this project and $625,000 for operations and maintenance of this project in 2019-2020; NOW, THEREFORE,
