Talk continues on road end plan

The city of Bainbridge Island is hosting a community meeting next week to get input on the redevelopment of the Fletcher Landing Road End.

Fletcher Landing is a 40-foot-wide road end, officials said, with a deteriorating concrete sea wall that needs to be addressed.

The meeting is 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 1 in the council chamber at city hall.

The city has also started an online survey to gather input on three redevelopment options for Fletcher Landing.

The options include features such as gravel pathways and viewing benches, landscaping, parking, new rockeries and native plantings.

The online survey can be found at www.bainbridgewa.gov/Fletcher.

After all results are in, the planning department will rank the plans and forward the rankings to the city’s Road Ends Committee for review and discussion. The Road Ends Committee will then make a recommendation to the city council.

The redevelopment of the Fletcher Landing Road End has been under discussion by the Bainbridge Island Road Ends Committee for several months. Recently, the committee asked the planning department to gather public input for the desired future redevelopment of the Fletcher Landing road end.

After two community meetings in January, the committee was advised on the primary goals and issues the public would like to see addressed for the road end.

Based on this public input, the Road Ends Committee has put forward three draft improvement plans for the public to rank and review.

The results of the initial two community meetings, and the three development options, can be viewed at http://www.bainbridgewa.gov/548/Fletcher-Landing-Road-End-Development.
