WE DID IT!
When I say WE did it I really mean it.
It amazes me how many people from our community participated in one way or another, to the success of this project. From large donors to small donors we were able to establish a cash reserve of about $13,000. With the trust and support of the Parks Department we were allowed to develop and submit a plan for the site. County parks sent out requests for bids and procured a pre-manufactured modular bridge.
With the pro-bono or reduced cost help of professionals we were able to complete all the site engineering, surveying, stream analysis and soils analysis.
After gathering all the data and getting all stakeholders (Parks, KC Forester, Suquamish Tribe, WDFW, DNR, park stewards) on board we were issued a permit.
With the help of skilled equipment operators, contractors and volunteers doing some heavy lifting the actual installation of the bridge was anti climactic.
We installed it in less than a month. After six years of planning the project is done.
Now we need some rain and fish.
