Concept plan will be unveiled for Sakai Park

The feasibility study for the Sakai Park Concept Plan will be presented by architect/landscape architect Jones & Jones at the Thursday, June 6 meeting of the board of commissioners of the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District.

The meeting will be held at the Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center and starts at 6 p.m.

The concept plan for Sakai Park was adopted last June by the board after an extensive public process that began in 2016.

To complete the Sakai Park concept, a competitive RFQ (request for qualifications) process was launched, and last October, the parks board selected architect and landscape architect Jones & Jones to develop a feasibility study for the park plan.

The upcoming presentation of the feasibility study will include schematic designs for the facilities presented in the concept plan as well as estimated capital and operational costs.

Action by the parks board is not anticipated, officials said, and no decisions to move forward with the design or any aspect of it will be made at the June 6 meeting.
