Bainbridge Island’s Waypoint Project, which transformed our Island gateway to the peninsula from a pile of rubble into a richly landscaped and artfully designed park-walkway, has won the Municipal Excellence Award for Building Partnerships. The annual award is given by the Association of Washington Cities (AWC) for an exemplary collaborative city building project in the state.
Harvey said award-winning projects are archived in an AWC database for other cities to review and learn from across the state.
A film crew from AWC will visit Bainbridge Island on June 5 to interview people involved in the Waypoint and show off the finished project, which visitors and commuters enjoy daily as they pass through between the ferry and Winslow.
The award will be presented at the 2013 AWC Annual Conference in Kennewick, Washington, at the Municipal Excellence Awards Breakfast on Thursday, June 27. The award itself will be a framed rendering of an image of Waypoint or its construction process to be hung in City Hall.
