title

AN ORDINANCE relating to the Department of Parks and Recreation; authorizing the Superintendent to amend the existing Operation and Maintenance Agreement between the Department of Parks and Recreation and the Seattle Art Museum concerning their roles in operation and maintenance of portions of Alaskan Way Boulevard and Myrtle Edwards Park that are operated as part of the Olympic Sculpture Park.

body

WHEREAS, in 2006, the City Council authorized the initial Operation and Maintenance Agreement between the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) and the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) by adopting Ordinance 122141; and

WHEREAS, in the 2006 agreement, SAM was responsible, during the plant establishment period but no longer than three years after plant installation, for routine maintenance of the plantings and vegetation related to the Embayment located in Myrtle Edwards Park, after which time maintenance became the responsibility of DPR; and

WHEREAS, the 2006 agreement was amended in 2011, by Ordinance 123544, extending SAM’s responsibilities for continuing the maintenance and planting for an additional three years from the effective date of the amendment; and

WHEREAS, the 2011 amendment provides for subsequent annual extensions of the Embayment maintenance obligation through the 25-year term of the Operation and Maintenance Agreement; and

WHEREAS, SAM has continued with this effort since establishment of the Embayment and is now requesting to continue their maintenance and planting responsibility, and is proposing a Second Amendment to the 2006 Agreement allowing SAM to continue its maintenance and planting responsibility for automatic successive one-year periods beginning on the expiration date of the initial three-year term specified in the 2006 agreement, and not to exceed the remainder of the 25-year term of the 2006 Agreement between SAM and DPR; and

WHEREAS, DPR would like to accept SAM’s offer for continuing their maintenance responsibilities for the Embayment in Myrtle Edwards Park; and

WHEREAS, the Parties now wish to clarify SAM’s rights under Paragraph 5 Subsection B of the 2006 agreement to include enforcement of City park rules and regulations governing public conduct in the Embayment area; and

WHEREAS, the rules governing public conduct on the Boulevard and Embayment shall be the same as those applicable to any other City park, as defined within the Parks Code, Chapter 18.12 of the Seattle Municipal Code; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY OF SEATTLE AS FOLLOWS:
