City of Gig Harbor New Park Dedication Set

Gig Harbor, Wash. May 10, 2011 – Mayor Chuck Hunter and the City of Gig Harbor along with Harbor Hill LLC (an Olympic Property Group company), will dedicate a new park parcel on Harbor Hill Drive on June 8th, 2011 at 3:00p.m.  The public is invited.


Olympic Property Group (OPG), developers of the Gig Harbor North properties, is deeding a parcel of land to the city for use as a future park.  OPG was granted preliminary plat approval for an 824 unit residential development in early January of this year.  As a condition of the development agreement for the property, OPG agreed to dedicate the 7 acre parcel in lieu of paying park impact fees for the project. The name of the future park is still to be determined.


“This park parcel is yet another significant amenity that will enhance the overall quality of life in Gig Harbor North” Mayor Chuck Hunter said today.  “We appreciate OPG’s forward-thinking, collaborative, and responsible approach to land use planning in our city.”


The dedication ceremony will be at the property which is located on the west side of Harbor Hill Drive, south of the Gig Harbor YMCA.  (10310 Harbor Hill Drive).  At the ceremony, a representative from OPG will present a check for $50,000 to the City of Gig Harbor to help pay for the preliminary conceptual design of the park.
