RE: 2013 Land Allocation Plan Joint Work Session
The following is a synopsis of all the recommendations from City Advisory Commissions. They are presented in order of the Land Allocation Plan. I recommend reviewing these specific properties, rather than attempting to review the plan page by page during the work session. If Council has additional properties to discuss, those can also be discussed section by section. Staff will draft a resolution for the next Council next meeting with any changes to the Land Allocation Plan.
A - Lands available for Lease
Page A-5. Remove Lot 20. Reserve this lot for a future travel lift. Staff recommendation: Designate property as Port Use and move to page D-15.
Page A-6. The construction of the Spit trail will disrupt this area.
Port & Harbor recommendation: Keep short term leases as is.
Parks & Rec: designate area as rest area.
B - Leased properties: No comments
C - Undesignated Lands
Page C-9. Designate Lots 3, 13 and 14 as public recreation.
(Spit trailhead parking and Mud Bay lands)
D - City Facilities:
Page D-2 library land – keep “for sale,” but delay any further marketing and sales efforts for 5 years until the real estate market improves.
E - Parks
Page E-2. Initiate the process to change the street name of Adams Drive to Jack Gist Lane.
Page E-26 Designate all lots as Mariner Park.
Page E-35 Designate End of the Road Park as a park.
F- Bridge Creek No comments
E – Conservation – No comments
