Washington is famous for its gorgeous and abundant waterways, from the Salish Sea to the Nisqually River, but many communities lack open public beaches and waterfronts where everyone can enjoy picnicking, swimming, paddling, boating, and angling. Water Access projects fund public shoreline access, boat launches, and fishing docks to create more opportunities for water recreation.
The City of Poulsbo completed the purchase of the W. Poulsbo Waterfront Park properties located at 5th Avenue NW and Viking. Due diligence was completed which included a site survey, necessary boundary line adjustment, cultural assessment, environmental site assessment and wetland reconnaissance. The sale was recorded on August 24, 2018. The deed of right is currently in process, and in the hands of RCO. The funding acknowledgement sign has been posted at the site. Once the final RCO inspection has been completed and the deed of right recorded, this project will be complete.
