Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Central Waterfront Partnerships Committee was established by Ordinance 123142 with a mission of advising the City on design, development, and management of public spaces on the waterfront after the demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. The Committee had 41 members, including one member each from the Design Commission, the Planning Commission, the Board of Park Commissioners; the directors of the Departments of Parks and Recreation, Planning and Development, and Transportation, and a representative from the Port of Seattle. The remaining at-large members represented other stakeholders and had expertise in public/private partnerships, public finance, public space design and management, historic preservation, sustainable design, multi-modal transportation, and arts and culture. Resolution 31264 established the Central Waterfront Committee to continue work on the CWPC's recommendations.
