A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, APPROVING THE EXTENSION OF THE INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, CITY OF LAKEWOOD AND PIERCE COUNTY FOR PLANNING THE CHAMBERS CREEK TRAIL PROJECT
WHEREAS, the cities of University Place and Lakewood and Pierce County are jointly working on the design and development of the proposed Chamber Creek Canyon Trail. Having trails in the Chambers Creek and Leach Creek Canyons have long been a goal of the City, which was identified at the first City visioning workshop held shortly after incorporation, proposed trail alignments were depicted in the Chambers Creek Master Site Plan and the City’s first Parks Recreation and Open Space Plan, both adopted in 1997; and
WHEREAS, in 2013 the City of University Place in cooperation with the City of Lakewood and Pierce County held a public open house, surveyed a trail alignment and developed a draft trail implementation plan. Staff from the three jurisdictions determined that the next logical step would be to develop an interlocal agreement; and
WHEREAS, City staff developed the attached Interlocal Agreement with the purpose of establishing a framework for the parties to cooperate and participate in the planning, designing and permitting work for the Trail, boardwalk and bridges and associated Trail connections and amenities as necessary, and to collaboratively seek grants and other funding sources for the Trail located between the Chambers Creek Road Trailhead and Kobayashi Park/Phillips Road; and
WHEREAS, by Resolution No. 750, the City of University Place agreed to partner with the City of Lakewood and Pierce County via an Interlocal Agreement on the foregoing topics and by its term, the Interlocal Agreement has expired. The City desires to continue this partnership.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, AS FOLLOWS:
