RESOLUTION NO. 805
A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, APPROVING A LEASE FOR WINDMILL VILLAGE SPACE D-3 BETWEEN THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE AND THE U.P. HISTORICAL SOCIETY, INC, FOR USE AS AN INTERIM MUSEUM
WHEREAS, under the Growth Management Act, the City is affirming its interest in preserving local and regional history; and
WHEREAS, preservation is important to foster appreciation of the City’s assets, culture, diversity and values to its visitors and residents; and
WHEREAS, on April 14, 2014, the City Council by Resolution 754, approved a Lease with the University Place Historical Society (UPHS), a Washington non-profit corporation, for the Curran House at Curran Apple Orchard; and
WHEREAS, the Lease allows UPHS to work to redevelop Curran House as a University Place History Museum and activity center; and
WHEREAS, at approximately the same time, the City’s administration allowed UPHS to utilize space D-3 in Windmill Village as temporary storage, cataloging and curatorial space for materials and artifacts, but not for general public access; and
WHEREAS, because of the length of time involved in redeveloping Curran House as the long-term museum, UPHS now wishes to secure a temporary lease of space D-3 in Windmill Village to open it to the public as the interim University Place History Museum; and
WHEREAS, UPHS understands that Windmill Village is under contract for redevelopment and would operate the interim museum only until Windmill Village is redeveloped, or Curran House is ready to function as the long-term home of the museum, whichever is earlier;
