WHEREAS, the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) owns and maintains the Emma Schmitz Memorial Overlook Park, located at 4503 Beach Drive SW; and

WHEREAS, the park contains a seawall built circa 1927, approximately 400 feet long, comprised of 10-foot-tall concrete slabs embedded in large concrete footings, and held in position by a series of recycled streetcar rails; and

WHEREAS, the existing seawall provides vital protection for a 54-inch diameter King County Metro sewer line, which is embedded about 2 feet behind the seawall, as well as Beach Drive SW and other City-owned infrastructure, from tidal and storm damage; and

WHEREAS, the existing seawall is badly deteriorated and in danger of collapse in the event of severe storm or tidal activity; and

WHEREAS, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Seattle District, has partnered with DPR to design and implement a coastal storm damage reduction project under Section 103 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1962, as amended; and

WHEREAS, USACE has assessed the seawall’s condition and proposed its replacement in its Alki Coastal Erosion Control Project Detailed Project Report/Environmental Assessment, which was approved by USACE’s Northwestern Division on August 26, 2016; and

WHEREAS, USACE has projected a total cost of $2,841,000 to design and build a replacement seawall; and

WHEREAS, USACE now proposes a Project Partnership Agreement (PPA) with The City of Seattle that would entail a cost-sharing agreement of 65 percent federal (USACE), 35 percent non-federal sponsor (DPR) for implementation of the full project, and the non-federal sponsor’s cost share can be remitted through a combination of cash payment and in-kind services; NOW, THEREFORE,

The Superintendent is further authorized to make such minor revisions to the stipulations contained in the PPA, and any necessary or convenient amendments to the PPA, including monetary revisions based on actual construction costs, as the Superintendent deems to be in the best interest of the City, and consistent with the purposes of this ordinance.
