STATEMENT OF FACTS:
1. King County's department of natural resources and parks, parks and recreation ("parks") is the custodian of Assessor's Parcel No. 072605-9280. This parcel lies within the city of Bothell and is one of the county properties comprising the Sammamish River Trail. The city of Bothell ("Bothell") has requested purchase of a 19,341 square foot area on the west side of this parcel ("the portion"), which abuts 96th Avenue NE in Bothell, for use in Stage 1 of its State Route 522 ("SR 522") Corridor Improvements Project ("Bothell's Project").
2. The major component of Bothell's Project improvements involves widening of SR 522 in both directions. The new northbound lane will widen SR 522, pushing it into the affected area of 96th Avenue NE. Acquisition of the portion will allow widening and realignment of 96th Avenue NE. A thirty-foot retaining wall will be built along the west side of the portion to protect it from erosion onto the street below. Bothell's work on the portion will neither impact the integrity of the Sammamish River, nor pedestrian accessibility to the river, which will still be available from the Sammamish River Trail.
3. Total compensation from Bothell to county for the Portion is $321,000, based on appraised values. Bothell city council has approved the purchase.
