Friends of Marymoor Park
September 28th, 2005 Meeting Summary
2) Current Capital Projects
3) Proposed New Rowing Association Boathouse
The option of building at Idlewood ran into the problem that the land was encumbered with conservation easements that pretty much precluded construction. So attention has returned to Marymoor West.
SRA has hired an architect. The new building will be located a bit to the west and above the existing boat house. The project will include removal of the existing pavement and hard path, replacing them with permeable surfaces.
Shoreline permits have been obtained. Grading permits are awaiting resolution of a right-of-way issue involving expansion of West Lake Sammamish Parkway.
Project completion target is 2007.
Barbara mentioned that there is standing water on the old driveway just south of the Rowing Club entrance. She’s concerned that it’s either a drainage problem or a water line leak.
Day of Caring Event – Jack wanted to give kudos to the Microsoft volunteers who helped pull out comfrey.
A question came up whether FOMP (and member 401c(3) organizations) could get on the list of charitable organizations for the State Employee’s Combined Fund Drive (sounds similar to the way the United Way giving works at some corporations). There is a similar drive for King County employees. Laurie Clinton will investigate the County fund.
Michael raised a question about a new construction south of Marymoor West. Barbara raised concern that there would be access to parts of Marymoor West that were previously inaccessible, and wondered if anything would be done to manage or prevent such access.
