Proposal Name: Waterfront Trail Renovation
Address of Proposal: Washington Park Arboretum, 2300 Arboretum East
Seattle Parks and Recreation is proposing to reconstruct the existing Waterfront Trail that connects the Washington Park Arboretum across Foster and Marsh Islands to East Montlake Park. The upland section of the trail across Foster and Marsh Island becomes inundated when the lake level is raised. Floating segments of the trail are in disrepair and some sections are sinking. None of the existing trail meets current accessibility standards outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act. The new trail will be constructed as a boardwalk structure, supported by pin piles on land and floating over Union Bay/Lake Washington and reconstructed in the same location as the existing trail.
The Seattle Parks and Recreation hereby issues a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS).
CONDITIONS: No conditions are being imposed.

The proposal file is available for viewing at the Seattle Parks and Recreation office located at 800 Maynard Avenue South, 3rd Floor, and at the Montlake Branch Library, 2401 24th Avenue East, Seattle, WA 98112.
