City Beach/Woodland Place -  Parking Improvements

In an effort to increase parking for City Beach patrons, the City purchased the lot at 55 Woodland in 2015.  The design team looked at several concepts for the lot at 55 Woodland Place.  The approved alternative will create 24 additional parking along Woodland Place Drive and create a non-motorized watercraft staging area using the vacant lot. 

The project will be completed by June 14, 2019 and includes the following work:

 Schedule 1:  This schedule involves the reconstruction of Woodland Place between Oregon Ave. and the Alley, as well as the landscaping improvements on the vacant lot, producing 18 new parking spaces.  The work includes pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalk, retaining wall, landscaping (trees, shrubs, grasses), and drought tolerant lawn to serve as a non-motorized watercraft staging area.

Schedule 2:  This schedule involves the reconstruction of Woodland Place between Washington Ave. and the Alley, producing 6 new parking spaces.  This schedule includes pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalk, and retaining wall.

Schedule 3:  This schedule involves the extension of the shared use path along Oregon Ave. to serve as a connection from the Skye Park Bridge to City Beach.

 

City Beach Lift Station Improvements

In its current condition, access to the City Beach Lift Station is difficult at best. 

  • In order to remove a pump from the lift station to perform routine pump maintenance, heavy equipment must be hauled down the dirt path.
  • If the pump requires off-site service, a dolly must be used to maneuver the pump back up the hill to a service truck.
  • When the station requires pumping, sections of heavy 6” vacuum hose must be laid out down the path, and subsequently removed.

The proposed project will improve access to the station by constructing a small utility drive, allowing service vehicles to access the station directly from Skyles Avenue.  This will enable the operators to use truck mounted equipment to remove pumps and place them directly into the truck for maintenance.  It will also enable us to use the vactor to directly evacuate the wet well of the station, should it require pumping.

The project is scheduled for completion by June 14, 2019

The City of Whitefish adopted the current Whitefish Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan in 1998.  Since then the city council has adopted amendments to the plan in 2003 an 2007. The Whitefish Bike/Ped Master Plan is a document being created for the City of Whitefish which will help guide city decision makers in creating and maintaining bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure in Whitefish over the next 20 years. This plan looks at the current state of bicycle and pedestrian options, uses input from the community (that's you!) to choose priorities, and then offers suggestions on how to achieve the selected goals and priorities.
