City of Bainbridge Island wraps up review of property transfer to parks district

The city of Bainbridge Island has completed its environmental review of a pending property transfer to the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District.

The city is planning the transfer of the 14.39-acre Lovgren Pit property. The land, acquired by the city as open space, is located at NE Lovgreen Road West and Miller Road.

The city completed its environmental review of the property transfer on July 27.

Perry Barrett, senior planner for the parks district, said the property will eventually become a park, but much work has to be done before that becomes a reality.

"We don't have a design for that park site," Barrett said.

The parks district updates its capital improvement plan each year, and Barrett said each park property will be reviewed for potential improvements.

Park commissioners will set priorities for the improvements through the budget process and are expected to adopt a new capital improvement plan later this year.
